The Canadian navy frigate HMCS Fredericton will visit St. John's Friday following a six-month deployment to the Arabian Sea, the Gulf of Aden and the Indian Ocean where the crew participated in a NATO and Combined Task Force 150-led anti-piracy and anti-terrorism mission.
The ship is expected to arrive about 2 p.m. at Pier 10 in St. John's Harbour.
After the annual commemoration of the Battle of the Atlantic Service which will be held 11 a.m. Sunday at the Anglican Cathedral, a parade will march to the waterfront.
The Chief of the Defence Staff, Gen. Walt Natynczyk, will be in attendance at all of the day's events and will travel to Halifax with the ship when she departs at 3 p.m. Sunday.
HMCS Fredericton was integrated into Standing NATO Maritime Group 1 as part of Canada's ongoing naval contribution to NATO.
The group's maritime security operations took place in the Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean and were focused on both counter-piracy and counter-terrorism. As well, during their deployment they contributed to Combined Task Force 150 as part of the campaign against terrorism.
