  • Description

    The 3,500-ton British nuclear submarine HMS Dreadnought, arrived at the Anzuk Naval Base in Singapore on Friday (27 July) after an unscheduled rescue operation in the Malacca Straits.

    The big submarine was close to the spot where the Cypriot tanker "Anson" and the Panamanian registered freighter "Carnations" collided on Thursday (26 July), about 65 miles (Approx 105 KM) northwest of Port Klang.

    Dreadnought picked up 35 seamen. Only one man was injured, and he was treated for shock aboard Dreadnought. Early on Friday, the two ships involved in the collision were stuck fast together in the Malacca Straits.

    The submarine and four Royal Navy ships will stay in dock at the Anzuk Naval Base until August 13, when they'll sail for Hong Kong.
