Landing Platform Helicopter Assualt Ship HMS OCEAN berthed in "Frigate Alley" on October 23, 2012. During Summer 2012 she had spent two months on the River Thames providing air platform support for The Olympic Games before returning to Devonport in September for refit by Babcock Marine. HMS OCEAN will then work up to full capability ready to take over again from HMS Illustrious as the Royal Navy’s high-readiness helicopter carrier later that year.
