star this property answer text <p>The first Type 45 destroyer is due to undergo Power Improvement Project upgrades in 2020 and will be returning to sea trials in 2021. Our £160 million investment in the Power Improvement Project will provide increases in both power generation and reliability for the rest of the Type 45 destroyers' service life. It is planned that all six ships should have completed their upgrade during the mid-2020s.</p><p>Like all Royal Navy ships, the Type 45 destroyers rotate through planned operating cycles involving maintenance, training, deployment, leave and capability upgrades. This results in individual ships being at various levels of readiness. The Type 45 Destroyers continue to be deployed on operations and contribute to the defence of the UK and our international partners.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Army formation records, including operational logs, are subject to the Public Record Acts 1958 and 1967. These require that records aged 30 years (reducing to 20 years following the Constitutional Reform and Governance Act 2010) are to be reviewed for selection for permanent preservation at The National Archives. Where the record is required for ongoing Departmental business, or the record contains information that is still sensitive, authority will be sought for the record's retention by the Ministry of Defence (MOD). Where a record is not selected for permanent preservation by The National Archives or retention within the Department, it is destroyed.</p><p>39 Infantry Brigade originally formed during World War 1, reforming in the 1950's and becoming involved in Northern Ireland in 1969 until its disbandment in 2007. To examine logs for the entirety of the Brigade's formation would require detailed searches through MOD's Main and Sensitive Archives and through The National Archive.</p><p>We are unable to determine if any Daily Logs exist without incurring disproportionate cost. If any daily activity logs do exist, they will be under the control of the MOD or The National Archive in line with the review process described above.</p>
