Exercise Cougar 12

HMS Illustrious and the rest of the Royal Navies Response Force Task Group (RFTG) is setting sail for a three month exercise, Cougar 12, in the Mediterranean. This is a fantastic opportunity for the men and women involved and it's a superb demonstration of the capability of the Royal Navy, despite the recent cuts and the negativity that you often read about in the press, and in the comments section of various online newspaper articles.
I could give a more detailed description, but frankly Sir Humphrey over at the Thin Pinstriped Line has covered it to a degree that would be difficult to match, so it makes sense to simply guide you in the direction of his piece, for those that haven't seen it already.
