The Australian Navy vessel HMAS A195 sailed to the Kings Wharf, Fiji last week.

This is HMAS Supply’s first visit to Fiji since being Commissioned in the Royal Australian Navy on the 10 April 2021.

The Australian High Commission in Fiji stated that the supply ship conducted the short visit to Suva to collect provisions.

 

The provisions would be used to sustain humanitarian operations that were ongoing in Tonga.
