David Burt, the Premier, paid a visit yesterday to the Royal Fleet Auxiliary ship Mounts Bay as the British disaster relief vessel called on the island.

Mr Burt and his children Nia and Ed were given a tour by Captain Jed Macanley of the ship, docked on Front Street, which heads for the Caribbean later this week.

The ship is carrying training equipment to the Dominican Republic as well as the island of St Vincent for the Royal Bermuda Regiment's training exercises.

Captain Gordon Emerson of the RBR will travel on the ship for five weeks as they head to Tradewinds, multinational military exercises that the Regiment joins in as part of its overseas training.
