Indian origin crew member part of UK naval exercises in Indian Ocean

Jagjeet Singh Grewal is a leading engineering technician in the Royal Navy. She is also an Indian-origin crew member on the United Kingdom Carrier Strike Group (CSG), which is currently sailing through the Indian Ocean Region.
The UK CSG 2021, led by Queen Elizabeth, has sailed into the Indian Ocean Region after having transited the Suez Canal and will meet with ships from the Indian Navy to conduct routine maritime exercises, according to according to a press release from the British High Commission in Delhi.
Serving aboard the fifth-generation aircraft carrier, Grewal works in the marine engineering department and is responsible for maintaining aviation fuel to the highest standard. He also maintains fuelling pumps on the flight deck so that the F-35B jets, Merlin helicopters, and other aircraft can operate to their optimum capacity. Currently settled in the UK, he has a long family history in the Indian military.
He shared, “My grandfather and grandfather-in-law served alongside the British Army in World War II and received a Mention in Dispatches, Burma Star, Africa Star, War Medal and Defence Medal. My father served in the Indian Air force and currently, my wife’s brother and uncle are serving in the Indian Navy.”

Grewal further added, “I am focused on doing my job to the highest standards, but it is good to know I am maintaining my family links while working with the Indian military.”
As the CSG sails in the Indian Ocean, engaging with its allies on its 26,000 nautical miles long maiden deployment, Grewal feels a special delight being part of the crew, training in the waters near to his ancestral home. The UK and India benefit from a unique living bridge of people, ideas, institutions, arts and culture. This includes an Indian diaspora of over 1.5 million people (2011 census) in the UK, contributing significantly to the country’s prosperity via interests in business, politics, academia, medicine and the arts, according to the British HC.
