A look at the Defence news 23 – 29 July
Last week, the Royal Netherlands Navy rescued 2 fishermen in the Caribbean. They had been drifting at sea for 18 days.
A coastguard Dash 8 patrol aircraft discovered the pair and alerted HNLMS Groningen. The Royal Netherlands Navy ship subsequently deployed its NH 90 onboard helicopter to winch the 2 men from their boat and fly them to Aruba.
