The men and women of HMS Defender have taken part in a video that documents what life at sea is really like.
 
Over the course of their six month deployment to the Gulf the ship’s Leading Photographer created the video that features boarding exercises, joint operations with the US Navy, land based movements and general sea navigation, all to the beat of the Exeter Chiefs Rugby Club chant – one of Defender’s affiliated cities. 

Forces TV is available on Sky 264, Virgin 277 and Freesat 652
