Exercise and train together the "NATO way" without having to arrange inter nation exercises. Its not just a "jolly" crossing the Atlantic etc.

This practice / procedure is something unexpectedly new to me too. Interesting.

Yes, it's also normal for a RN type 23 Frigate & type 45 Destroyer to escort the French FS Charles de Gaulle or a Nimitz class. It's a NATO thing.

So the RN had to get a French Navy ship to escort a carrier?
