RAN - Royal Australian Navy.
From a Hot Mail courtesy Harry at Sharkhunters and thanks to WIZARD.
"RAN ON THE MOVE - A pair of Royal Australian Navy mine hunters have departed Sydney for a three-month deployment to North-east Asia, the first such deployment in over seventy years. The deployment comes amidst a major shift in focus for the service as it looks to refocus on Asia after decades in the Middle East."
NORTH-EAST ASIA! Presumably this means waters contiguous to the Korean peninsula?
Yet one more further show of solidarity with allied powers - - an Australian response to the Korean Crisis?
See as well the most recent blog entry as relevant to this naval deployment.
"Forward Australia Fair"!
