HMAS Anzac visit to Manila
16 May 2016
The Royal Australian Navy guided missile frigate HMAS Anzac will visit Manila from 16 to 21 May 2016 as part of its current deployment around South-East Asia.
The port visit to Manila will allow the ship's company to conduct cultural exchange activities, including sporting events with their Philippines’ Navy counterparts as well as replenishing fuel and stores.
During its South-East Asia deployment Anzac will visit numerous cities and ports and conduct exercises and training with regional navies.
On sailing from Manila, Anzac will exercise with the Philippine Navy’s BRP Rajah Humabon in the waters off the Philippines, conducting passage exercises, ship handling operations and personnel exchanges.
The activities are designed to increase an understanding of each nation’s operational procedures to further enhance interoperability.
