BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Port Canaveral’s Mobile Harbor Crane and Ambassador Services Inc. were busy Monday loading three new patrol boats onto a barge headed to the Royal Bahamas Defense Force.
The Royal Bahamas Defence Force is the military of The Bahamas. Since The Bahamas does not have an army or an air force, its navy composes the entirety of its armed forces.
Under The Defence Act, the Royal Bahamas Defence Force has been mandated to defend The Bahamas, protect its territorial integrity, patrol its waters, provide assistance in times of disaster, maintain order in conjunction with the law enforcement agencies of The Bahamas, and carry out any such duties as determined by the National Security Council.
The Defence Force is also a member of CARICOM’s Regional Security Task Force, and with about 1,600 members, it is the largest of the Commonwealth Caribbean navies.
