HMCS Charlottetown-back after 247 days.

HMCS Charlottetown returned to Halifax this morning after completing one of the longest overseas postings in the history of the RCN. The ship left Halifax January 8 and spent four months for NATO in the Mediterranean. It then shifted to the Arabian Sea. Its mission included counter terrorism and drug interdiction work. The ship spent two days in St.John's and hastened opn to Halifax in advance of post tropical storm Leslie.
It actually arrived at CFB Shearwater during the night. It embarked VIPs this morning and made a ceremonial arrival at HMC Dockyard for 10 am. In the photo it is seen clearing the Eastern Passage heading for Halifax.
