    Good day all.  As I write this diary entry, HMS Bulwark has finally set sail for the TAURUS 09 deployment following months of planning and training by both the Ship and COMATG (Commander Amphibious Task Group).

    Firstly, may I wish you all a very Happy New Year. 2008 was a very busy year for HMS Bulwark and the Ship’s Company were certainly grateful of some well earned Christmas leave..
