Home > News > Armed Forces visit to Gibraltar

Last week I spent my parliamentary recess out on a very informative visit with the Armed Forces in Gibraltar.

It was great to meet Carl Thomas from Bryn, Llanelli (in the photo) and hear about his diving and bomb disposal work with the Royal Navy’s clearance diving unit. He’s also spent many years in the UK defusing bombs like the one we recently heard about in the Thames.

My visit also included going out on HMS Sabre, one of the Royal Navy’s patrol boats, as well as joining an army training session with the Royal Gibraltar Regiment and visiting the RAF base.
