1st November 2014

The Royal Navy medical ship RFA Argus has left the UKR bound for Sierra Leone, carrying three Merlin helicopters and a crew of around 380, and will act as an offshore base as the troops set up Ebola treatment centres.

Among the crew are doctors, nurses, surgeons and Royal Marines.

Varivane Industries are proud to be a key supplier of equipment to the RFA, and we offer our best wishes to all on board.
