Sailors’ unique Mother’s Day message

Over 200 sailors on board a British warship on Sunday sent a special Mother’s Day message back home from the Gulf.

Crew members lined up on the flight deck of destroyer HMS Dauntless to form the word “Mum” and two kisses. The photo was taken from the ship’s helicopter which was on a training flight. The greeting was sent on behalf of the 210-strong crew of the Portsmouth-based warship, which is in the Gulf to deter piracy and keep sea lanes open. For many of the service personnel on board the destroyer, it is their first time on a major deployment away from the UK where Mothers Day is celebrated on March 15.

Commander Adrian Fryer, the ship’s commanding officer, said: “When we are away from home the support of our families and loved ones is incredibly important in helping us to carry out our tasks to the best of our abilities.
