First Royal Navy ship in 20 years arrives in Auckland, New Zealand
George Allison
January 15, 2019
HMS Montrose today became the first Royal Navy warship in more than 20 years to berth at the Devonport Navy base in Auckland.
The frigate has been helping in the fight against plastic in the Pacific Ocean.
“It’s really tragic as a mariner to see just how much plastic waste has washed up on these otherwise pristine beaches,” Commanding Officer Conor O’Neill told local media outlet 1 NEWS on arrival into Auckland.
“Some of it’s fishing gear… it’s more plastic barrels, plastic chairs, grills, netting – all sorts of plastic waste which has clearly been dumped in the ocean,” he said.
The vessel also recently made history as she conducted the first visit in over eighteen years to the British Overseas Territory, the Pitcairn Islands; with the last visit being made by HMS Sutherland and RFA Bayleaf in September 2000 as part of their world tour.
