HMAS Toowoomba Returns from the Middle East


HMAS Toowoomba provided support to International Maritime Security Construct (IMSC) and Combined Maritime Forces (CMF) coalition partners in the Middle East Region as part of the Ship’s six-month deployment on Operation MANITOU. Toowoomba’s Ship’s Company supported both the IMSC and the CMF as part of the Australian Defence Force’s contribution to support international efforts to promote security, stability and prosperity in the region.

This was the 68th rotation of a Royal Australian Navy unit in the Middle East Region since 1990 and is Toowoomba’s sixth deployment to the region and second as part of Operation MANITOU.
