photoblog image Singapore Naval Open House: HMAS Bathurst

Singapore Naval Open House: HMAS Bathurst

Another ship seen at the Singapore Naval Open House. However, by the time I got around to this berth, it was nearing the end of the day. Therefore, no visitors were allowed on board. I quite liked this view, which shows off the name of course, plus the coat of arms. Below the latter, is the motto "Strike Hard". 


Looking up on the 'net, I can see that the Bathurst is one among several patrol crafts that are designed to check illegal immigration, import of illicit drugs and protection of fishery stocks.

The Ship's Bell, I suppose, is to summon all hands for their daily dram'o'rum, Ayush?
