G’day to Our Southern Cross Allies

Our steadfast southern allies arrived at New York in two ships of the Australian Navy this week.

The HMAS Ballarat and HMAS Sydney visited New York in the company of the USS Mahan in commemoration of 100 years of naval alliance and cooperation.

Red Squirrel, undoubtedly enticed by the appearance of the red kangaroo on the stacks, took the opportunity to visit the ships while they were open to the public today.

Her outstanding report and a plethora of photos are at the Vigilant Squirrel Brigade website.
