HMS Ocean will feature as part of a new three-part programme, Warship, by Channel 4 this evening.

It chronicles the ups and downs of amphibious assault ship’s most recent seven-month deployment in the Gulf.

Ocean joined the US-led naval group last year, taking on the role of command platform for the United States Naval Combined Task Force 50 – the first British vessel to lead the operation.
