RFA Fort Victoria Returns to UK

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today RFA Fort Victoria Returns to UK December 10, 2013 Training & Education After stopping 20 armed pirate groups and seizing more than 50 pirates, RFA Fort Victoria has completed a marathon 40-month deployment by sailing home yesterday. For many of her 1,197 days away from the United Kingdom, support ship RFA Fort Victoria has acted as Britain’s leading warrior in the fight against 21st-Century piracy in the Indian Ocean.The vessel – built to provide the warships of the Royal Navy with fuel, food, ammunition and stores – has twice acted as the flagship of a specially-formed task force of sailors and Royal Marines charged with successfully hunting down ‘pirate action groups’ – clusters of skiffs and mother ships operating off the Somali coast, intending to attack merchant shipping.Each one of the successful blows against the pirates – be it a disrupted attack or arresting suspects – has been marked with skull and crossbones painted on the bridge wing of the 35,000-tonne oiler/replenishment ship: 20 successes in all.Fort Vic’s deployment began when she left Crombie Jetty, near Rosyth in Scotland, in August 2010 – and it is to the same place that she returns, mission complete.“During our time away we have led a number of counter piracy task groups, captured over 50 pirates, recaptured a large Italian bulk carrier – the MV Montecristo – rescued a significant number of merchant seamen from pirates and, most importantly, made the waters around Somalia much safer,” said her Commanding Officer Capt Shaun Jones OBE RFA.The ship is a specialist auxiliary, fast and well armed; she carries stores, ammunition and fuel as well as having a large flight deck and hanger.This has allowed RFA Fort Victoria to not only conduct her patrols but to replenish other British and Allied warships in the region to enable them to stay on task longer.Although the ship has been away from the UK since August 2010, her 150 crew – mostly Royal Fleet Auxiliary, supported by Royal Navy and Civil Service personnel – change every few months.“It has been a magnificent honour to serve as Fort Victoria’s Commanding Officer through much of this period and I have nothing but admiration for the men and women who have worked onboard,” said Capt Jones.“Together the RFA, Royal Navy and Civil Service personnel – plus other military units who have served in the ship – have ensured that the deployment was such a unique and stunning success.”“We are all looking forward to seeing our families and loved ones again and the ship will now have a well deserved refit prior to returning to operations in early 2015.”Fort Victoria’s east-of-Suez mission is being continued by RFA Fort Austin, which is currently the flagship of the international Combined Task Force 151, overseeing the counter-piracy effort across 2.5 million square miles of Indian Ocean.[mappress]Press Release, December 10, 2013; Image: Royal Navycenter_img RFA Fort Victoria Returns to UK Share this articlelast_img read more

Man’s Companion Entitled To Compensation For Services, COA Rules

first_img Man’s Companion Entitled To Compensation For Services, COA RulesOlivia Covington for www.theindianalwyer.comAn Indiana probate court correctly allowed a woman’s partial claim for compensation for 14 years of household and medical services to a man she considered a “loving companion,” the Indiana Court of Appeals ruled Friday, finding the woman had rebutted the presumption her services were gratuitous.After George Henry’s wife, Phyllis, developed cystic fibrosis, he hired Nadene Woods to work as his wife’s assistant for four days a week at a rate of $150 per week. When Phyllis Henry died in February 1998, Woods began taking on household duties for the widower.Then, when Henry suffered a heart attack, Woods moved into the house while also maintaining a separate residence. Woods continued to care for Henry after his second heart attack in 2010 and until his death in 2012.After Henry died, Woods filed a claim against his estate, seeking compensation in the amount of $381,355 for her 14 years of service. The claim was substantially disallowed by the estate executor, but at an ensuing bench trial the Marion Superior Court partially allowed Woods’ claim and awarded her $125,400.On appeal, Henry’s estate argued Woods was required to rebut a presumption that her services were gratuitous and that she was unable to meet that requirement. But Indiana Court of Appeals Judge L. Mark Bailey wrote in a Friday opinion the trial court made no specific finding or conclusion as to whether Woods rebutted such a presumption.However, Bailey further wrote there was no evidence of a biological, marital or adoptive relationship between Henry and Woods. Thus, “the probate court’s omission of a finding or conclusion relative to whether Woods rebutted a presumption of gratuitousness is not error.”Henry’s estate further challenged the trial court’s finding of fact that Henry had told some of his friends he didn’t need to marry Woods and that when he died she would be well taken care of. The estate claimed such a statement could have been used “to support a finding that George Henry had agreed in the future to compensate Nadene for her services,” but Bailey wrote such an argument does not provide grounds for reversal.Finally, Henry’s estate argued Woods was unable to prove the existence of an implied contract for payment of her services in the absence of an express contract, so her claim must fail due to a lack of evidence. But the appellate panel also rejected that argument, finding the evidence of Woods’ years of service to Henry would allow her to succeed on both implied contract and unjust enrichment claims.“(Henry’s children) made no arrangements for alternate care and thus incurred no expense depleting potential estate assets,” Bailey wrote. “It would be unjust to permit the Estate to retain all the assets preserved without making payment to Woods.”Chief Judge Nancy Vaidik concurred in result, writing in a separate opinion “the rebuttable presumption that services are gratuitous should apply to this case because although Woods and Henry were not married, they lived together as a couple and operated as a family for fourteen years.”But Vaidik also wrote she agreed Woods had rebutted the presumption by proving an implied contract. Thus, because the majority found an implied contract worth $125,400, Vaidik concurred in result.The case is The Estate of George A. Henry, Deceased v. Nadene Woods, 49A05-1604-PL-810.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

4 ways to create loyal members

first_img 20SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for John manages the content on the site, including current news, editorial, press releases, jobs and events. He keeps the credit union … Web: Details It used to be said that there’s no business like show business. Quite honestly, I think there’s no business like repeat business. If you want your credit union to grow, you need to make members happy and keep them coming back. Here are four ways you can create loyalty from your members…Make yourself available: There’s no doubt that members (especially newer ones) will have questions they need answered from time to time. Being available will help you build trust when these questions arise. They’ll know you’re there for them, and you’ll start to develop a relationship that will lead to loyalty.Be involved: If you want to really give your members the products and services they need, you need to find out exactly what those products and services are. Don’t just send out a survey and forget it about. Use that information to make the products your members need available when they need them most.Show gratitude: You wouldn’t have a job without your members, so make sure they know it. Come up with rewards or prizes that will help them know just how much their business means to you. If you want continued loyalty, show them how much they’re appreciated right now.Treat ’em like family: If you want your members to like and trust you, you need to engage them on a personal level. By asking personal questions and opening up about yourself, you can show your members that they are more than just numbers to you.last_img read more
