Devastation of the island of Jost Van Dyke after hurricane Irma

Picture shows the devastation of the island of Jost Van Dyke after hurricane Irma.

 

A small team of Royal Marines from Alpha Company, 40 Commando, landed on Jost Van Dyke; a small island North West of the island of Tortola.

 

The team helped to deliver essential aid utilising a small boat to support this isolated community of just 300 people. In addition to the provision of aid, they also helped to clear buildings and provide security to this welcoming community who were working hard to restore their normal way of life. The Commandos were unsure of what to expect when they arrived and had to assess the situation upon their arrival.
