Ebola: Meet the crew on board RFA Argus

The Royal Navy medical ship RFA Argus has left Britain for Sierra Leone, carrying three Merlin helicopters and a crew of around 380.

The supply ship will act as an offshore base as the troops set up Ebola treatment centres in Sierra Leone.

Those on board include doctors, nurses, surgeons and Royal Marines. BBC News met some of them.
