Australian frigate visits South Africa


 6 July 2015

The Royal Australian Navy’s helicopter frigate HMAS Anzac has arrived in Cape Town, as part of her NORTHERN TRIDENT 2015 deployment.
 
Anzac departed Sydney in March and has transited the Southern Ocean, Indian Ocean, the Red Sea, Suez Canal, the Mediterranean Sea and the North and South Atlantic en route to Cape Town.
        
During the five month deployment, the ship has represented Australia at Centenary of Anzac commemorative events in the Sea of Marmara, Cape Helles, Gallipoli, Italy and Malta, along with ‘D Day’ commemorations at Normandy.
 
Anzac’s visit to Cape Town will provide an important opportunity to work with the South African Navy, a fellow member of the Indian Ocean Naval Symposium.
 
Together with the Australian High Commission in Pretoria, Anzac will co-host an official reception, and the ship will also exercise with the South African Navy following the visit to Cape Town.


Anzac’s Commanding Officer Commander Belinda Wood described the significance of the visit.
        
“South Africa and Australia have each embraced the Indian Ocean Naval Symposium, and work more closely than ever to address the raft of maritime security issues in the Indian Ocean,” Commander Wood said.
 
“As we work together on humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, counter-piracy and information sharing and interoperability, we look forward to growing the professional relationship between our navies.
 
“We may be situated at opposite sides of a very large ocean, but it is a vital territory to the world’s maritime prosperity and the issues and challenges we face are very much the same.”
