Exercise Joint Warrior 19-2

This JW incorporated Exercise Griffin Strike with the aim of proving the maritime element of the Anglo-French Combined Joint Expeditionary Force (CJEF), which resulted from the austerity-driven Lancaster House Agreement in 2010 and its interoperability with other NATO partners.

In addition to the UK and France, there were participants from Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the USA.

Also involved were Canadian CP-140, French Atlantique 2 and USN P-8A maritime patrol aircraft operating from Prestwick, RAF Chinooks from 27 Sq detached to Lossiemouth and operating from time to time from Carlisle. USAF C-17s were based at Prestwick.
