The officers and sailors of Royal Australian Navy operational support base HMAS Cairns have conducted a Freedom of Entry march through their namesake city.
Commanding Officer HMAS Cairns, Commander Alfonso Santos, said the event was a reminder of the strong connection Navy personnel have with Queensland’s far north community.
“Navy has been supported by the community in Cairns since World War II, when Cairns was the final port of call for many ships heading to the Pacific – this strong support continues today,” Commander Santos said.
