HMAS Anzac Docks in Valletta, Malta

The Royal Australian Navy’s helicopter frigate HMAS Anzac has arrived in Valletta, Malta, as part of her NORTHERN TRIDENT 2015 deployment.

Anzac departed Sydney in March 2015, and has transited the Southern Ocean, Indian Ocean, the Red Sea and Suez Canal before arriving in the Mediterranean Sea.

During the five month deployment, the ship has represented Australia at Centenary of Anzac commemorative events in the Sea of Marmara, Cape Helles, Gallipoli and Italy, and is continuing to do so in Malta.

While in Malta, members of ship’s company will participate in a commemorative service at the Cappucini Naval Cemetery, Kalkara.

Together with the Australian High Commission in Valletta, Anzac will co-host an official reception during the port visit, and Anzac’s Commanding Officer Commander Belinda Wood, RAN, will also host a mentoring session with female members of the Maltese Armed Forces.
