Casblanca, Morocco Welcomes HMAS Anzac
The Royal Australian Navy’s helicopter frigate HMAS Anzac has arrived in Casblanca, Morocco, 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 most recently the North Atlantic en route to Casablanca.
During the five month deployment, the ship has represented Australia at commemorative events in the Sea of Marmara, Cape Helles, Gallipoli, Italy, Malta and France.
Anzac’s visit to Casablanca marks a rare visit to Morocco by an Australian Warship, and is being conducted in support of development of a stronger working relationship between the two maritime countries.
Together with the Australian Ambassador in Paris, Anzac will co-host an official reception.
