HMAS Diamantina has spent two weeks finding and destroying unexploded World War II munitions in the waters around the Solomon Islands during Operation RENDER SAFE in September 2016.
The Sydney-based mine hunter vessel found over 120 projectiles during its search around the Russell Islands, Florida Group and Honiara using sonar, mine disposal vehicles and divers.
Operation RENDER SAFE is the Australian Defence Force led enduring commitment to the removal of explosive remnants of war across the South West Pacific which continues to pose a potential danger to local communities.
This is the official Royal Australian Navy YouTube Playlist for the International Fleet Review 2013.
In late 2011, the Chief of Navy (CN) - Vice Admiral Ray Griggs, AO, CSC, RAN extended an invitation to over 50 nations to send a warship and/or tall ship to participate in an International Fleet Review (IFR) to be held in Sydney from 3 - 11 October 2013. The Review is being held to commemorate the centenary of the first entry of the Royal Australian Navy's Fleet into Sydney.
The IFR is a high profile international event and Navy's signature commemorative event for 2013. Planned in partnership with the NSW State Government and the City of Sydney, it is anticipated that approximately 40 visiting warships and 12 tall ships will participate in this historic event.
