Rare Event – Freo Welcomes Perth!


Freo Today. Late afternoon, 25 February 2022. HMAS Perth (FFH 157) about to tie up at Victoria Quay in the Port of Fremantle. Great sight for those lucky enough to be there, as our editor, Michael Barker was, camera in hand. HMAS Perth (FFH 157) is an Anzac-class frigate of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). The last ship of the class to be completed, she was built by Tenix Defence and commissioned into the RAN in 2006. In 2007, Perth became the first major warship of the RAN to be commanded by a woman.
