HMAS Stuart prepares to come alongside her home port at Garden Island, Sydney, to the sounds of bagpipes. HMAS Stuart was temporarily based in the west after a hull swap with HMAS Anzac.

With the sounds of a lone piper playing on the Chaff Deck, the ‘Tartan Terror’ glided into Fleet Base East and was met by family and friends as well as the Commander Australian Fleet, Rear Admiral Tim Barrett.
