AZURE water and a pod of dolphins greeted HMAS Perth
as she pulled into Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on June 6 as part
of her Mid-Pacific 2011 (MIDPAC) deployment.
MIDPAC saw Perth test and evaluate the Anti-Ship Missile
Defence upgrade while HMAS Sydney conducted Standard
Missile 2 and Evolved Sea Sparrow Missile firings.
On the morning of June 9, the ships' companies of both
Perth and Sydney played cricket against the Honolulu Cricket
Club of Waikiki.
After a fairly close game, with an excellent knock by LSCIS
Nathan Zessin and a good performance by ABMT David
Harmer with both the bat and ball, Perth eventually lost to the
Honolulu Cricket Club by three wickets and three overs.
The Sydney cricket team also fell to the prowess of the
home team, managing to score 66 runs, while the locals scored
157 with 3 wickets to spare after 20 overs.
LSPT David Abery from Perth said the games were a great
way to kick-start the port visit.
"Both teams battled hard to upset the Honolulu Cricket
Club but the locals' polish and experience on the field won over
us," he said.
On the evening of June 9, Perth hosted a cocktail party
where officers from the US Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard,
as well as local VIPs, were treated to Australian hospitality
with marinated kangaroo on skewers proving a favourite among
Perth and Sydney's officers also conducted a combined
wardroom mess dinner on board USS Missouri where 60 offic-
ers enjoyed a traditional RAN mess dinner under Missouri's
imposing 16-inch guns -- the venue where the Japanese signed
the Declaration of Surrender at the end of World War II.
Perth's Commanding Officer, CAPT Mal Wise, said the two
ships have had a very successful first half of their deployment.
"After the trials both ships took part in here in Hawaii, we
are eager to put all that into practice in an exercise environment
during Talisman Sabre," he said.
Next stop for Perth and Sydney is Exercise Talisman Sabre
off the coast of Queensland later this month.
