HMAS Anzac is on her way back home to Australia from the Gulf, after 4 months of maritime security tasking with the Combined Maritime Forces (CMF) as part of Combined Task Force (CTF) 150.

HMCS REGINA is presently participating in Operation ARTEMIS.

To bid ‘bon voyage’ to a valued team partner, HMCS Regina, a Canadian ship currently part of CTF 150, passed in close company to Anzac allowing the men and women onboard both warships to conduct a traditional farewell accompanied by water plumes, cheering and good natured banter.

Commodore Charles McHardie, Royal Australian Navy, Commander CTF 150 said:

“I would like to thank CMDR Staviridis and his Ship’s Company for all the hard work and dedicated effort they have put into contributing to the CTF150 mission. They have shown commendable flexibility in responding so effectively to short notice tasking and set the standard to be emulated.”

CTF 150 is one of three task forces operated by CMF: its mission is to promote maritime security in order to counter terrorist acts and related illegal activities, which terrorists use to fund or conceal their movements. The activities of CTF-150 directly influence events ashore, as terrorist organisations are denied a risk free method of conducting operations or moving personnel, weapons or income-generating narcotics.
