RBDF Photo 3#Bahamas, September 14, 2017 – Nassau – Royal Bahamas Defence Force vessel, HMBS Lawrence Major under the command of Lieutenant Commander Milton Munroe, left early this morning with essential equipment and supplies to begin restoration efforts on Ragged Island.

The auxiliary craft carried 4 vehicles belonging to the Bahamas Power and Light Company, along with utility poles and lumber.   These items will be used in the rebuilding efforts on the hard hit island following the destruction by Hurricane Irma.

HMBS Lawrence Major will also proceed to Inagua where she will deliver additional hurricane relief equipment and supplies.   The Defence Force has also deployed a security team to Ragged Island and also a patrol craft to monitor the neighboring Great Bahama Bank.
