DIAMONDs are Forever – Well 2014 – The Type 45 Destroyer DIAMOND has started Basic Operational Sea Training at Devonport.   Having spent most of May and June 2013 taking part in multinational exercises, the Type 45 Destroyer has commenced her first period of formal assessed sea training in over a year.    Since being last under the guidance of Flag Officer Sea Training in May 2012, DIAMOND has made a six month deployment East of Suez and on return underwent routine maintenance before participating in a sequence of exercises.   DIAMOND will return again to Flag Officer Sea Train later in the year for its Directed Continuation Training, after which the Destroyer will be ready for operations in 2014.
