A week after sailing from their homeport of Sydney, the crew of HMAS Anzac sailed from Fleet Base West this week on the next leg of their deployment on Northern Trident 2015.
Anzac sailed in company with her sister ship HMAS Toowoomba and the Royal New Zealand Navy replenishment ship HMNZS Endeavour, to Anzac Cove for Anzac Day.
Following the departure, the ships met up with a third Anzac class frigate, HMNZS Te Kaha, off the Perth coast, marking the beginning of the voyage in company of two sister ships — Anzac and Te Kaha — as they journey together to the Centenary of Anzac commemorative events at Gallipoli and in the Western Mediterranean.
Having just completed their respective workups for deployment, the crews of Anzac and Te Kaha will continue to hone their seamanship, operations and damage control skills so that they can operate far from their home countries.
HMAS Anzac is currently deployed on NORTHERN TRIDENT 2015 during which it will participate in the Centenary of Anzac commemorations in April, followed by a series of important international engagements.
