Indian Navy Tall Ship Open for Visitors at the Phuket Deep Sea Port
The elegant three-masted tall ship INS Sudarshini added a touch of 19th-century glamour to the Phuket Deep Sea Port at Ao Makham when it arrived this week on a courtesy call.
Three other Indian Navy ships, the INS Tir, INS Sujata and ICGS Varuna, arrived alongside the INS Sudarshini at the Phuket Deep Sea Port last Thursday, Oct 27. The Indian Navy ships will be open for people to visit this today, Oct 30. After the Indian Navy squadron arrived on Thursday, Mr Abba Gani Ramu, Deputy Chief of Mission for the Embassy of India, Bangkok, led officials in signing a memorial book to pay their respect to His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulajev.
All 337 naval crew members will leave the port to join a PASSEX exercise on Thursday next week, which is aimed at strengthening cooperation between the Thai and Indian Navies.
