The ships are taking part in Operation Northern Trident, a six month international deployment:

I would say it was a great day for Australia. It's nice to see the show of the flag.

Regards

Why such a long time, I wonder? Australia seems to have always been in fairly close cooperation with the US when it comes to naval exercises. I guess the Pacific is a big bath tub to play in! And I'm sure the US sailors enjoy coming out here.

Martin

p.s. My uncle was on HMAS Hobart (I), which visited Hiroshima not long after the bomb had been dropped.
