Former Flag Officer and Commanding Officer of HMS Ark Royal, Terry Loughran, recalls his experiences in the Royal Navy - and compares this to current trends in international security. Listen to him detail the changes in the mission of the Royal Navy, and talk about how defence cuts threaten Great Britain's presence and security in the world. From discussions of international trade to piracy to drug trafficking, he highlights the pressures placed on the Royal Navy, which now can only be exacerbated by significant reductions in equipment and manpower.
