British royal warship berths at Ghana’s Western Naval Command

HMS Dauntless, a British Royal Navy war ship, on Tuesday berthed at the Western Naval Command in Sekondi for a three-day duty tour.

The ship, which is under the command of Captain William Warrender, has a crew of 210.

It was met on arrival by Mr Peter Jones, British High Commissioner in Ghana, who later paid courtesy calls on Commodore Tim Appiah, Flag Officer Commanding the Western Naval Command and Madam Emelia Arthur, Deputy Western Regional Minister.

Speaking during the courtesy call on the Deputy Minister, Mr Jones said the ship, which is on its first visit to the country had already been to the Eastern Naval Command.

He said the visit forms part of the links between the Royal Navy and the Ghana Navy to improve maritime security to ensure free trade and to protect the territorial waters and exclusive zones of Britain and Ghana.

Mr Jones said the crew of the ship and the Ghana Navy would conduct joint training programmes to improve the maritime skills of their personnel.

Madam Arthur spoke of the long standing cordial relations between Ghana and Britain and hoped the visit of the ship would further cement the bond of friendship between the two countries.
