  • Description

    THE ROYAL AUSTRALIAN NAVY SUBMARINE -- H.M.A.S. OTWAY -- ARRIVED IN GHANA LAST SATURDAY (AUGUST 10) ON A THREE-DAY GOODWILL VISIT. IT WAS THE FIRST TIME AN AUSTRALIAN NAVAL VESSEL HAD VISITED THE WEST AFRICAN NATION.

    THE OTWAY WAS COMMISSIONED AT PORTSMOUTH, IN ENGLAND, LAST APRIL, AND CARRIES 65 RATINGS AND SEVEN OFFICERS. HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE LINED THE VESSEL'S BERTH AT TEMA HARBOUR, WAITING UNTIL THE PUBLIC WAS ALLOWED ABOARD.
