Dili, Timor Leste Hosts HMAS Huon

Australian Navy’s HMAS Huon has conducted an official visit to Dili, Timor Leste, in support of the 40th Anniversary of Falantil Day.

As part of the visit, Huon hosted 12 members of the naval component of the Falantil-Forcas Defensa Timor Leste for a sea training day as part of the Defence Cooperation Program.

The Timorese members embarked were mostly Officers-of-the-Watch or Marine Technicians with one Clearance Diver and one Chef.

Upon sailing, Huon proceeded to the north of Dili and demonstrated a man overboard exercise for her guests. After recovering the sea boat, the ship rolled into damage control exercises.

The sea training day wrapped up a successful port visit for Huon.

Huon is conducting a three month Operation RESOLUTE deployment in Australia’s northern waters.
