Royal Fleet Auxiliary ship RFA Argus leaves Sierra Leone today after completing her deployment.
The Argus departs after being honoured with a rare Admiralty Letter of Commendation for her work since 1982.
The ship has served on numerous short notice deployments, including the Falklands and Gulf Wars.
In Sierra Leone, meanwhile, she provided helicopter and medical support to ground forces in the fight against Ebola, as part of Operation Gritrock.
It comes as millions of people across Sierra Leone are being told to stay in their homes for the next three days as part of a major campaign to eradicate the virus, with medical teams to go from house-to-house looking for people who are sick.
Forces TV's Charlotte Cross has more on the recognition of the work done by the ship and her crew over the past 33 years.
