    If only your Army would follow navy and make an account also. Their photos are too small on the webpage.

    Welcome and thank you for the picture. Principe de Asturias will be soon scrapped for budgetary reasons. And it looks like it was yesterday when it replaced old, venerable Dedalo. Oh, well...

    After our first escort we headed to the meeting point with the second merchant ship that we have assigned to provide protection. Her route goes from Port Sudan (Sudan) to Mombasa (Kenya), across the Strait of Bab el Mandeb and Gulf of Aden, and we will be an shared convoy with the french frigate 'Surcouf'.
    The crew is overturned in the preparation of Christmas on board. The few free moments at our disposal during the afternoons are devoted to assay Christmas carol and making nativity scenes, subject to the creativity of each group. Next day will be the gala of the competition presented by ensign Alejandro Fraga and in which a demanding jury, the Commander, 2nd Commander, the chaplain, the Brigade D. Amador Serrano and the Corporal Gonzalo Fernandez will select the best, Christmas carol, Bethlehem and Christmas card.

    The Spanish frigate 'Méndez Núñez', deployed in the Gulf of Aden off the coast of Somalia, prevented the kidnapping last week of North Korean-flagged merchant ship 'Dae San', in circumstances that are being investigated .

    As reported today by the Ministry of Defence, the merchant was anchored and guarded by police maritime region of Puntland, northern Somalia, for allegedly pouring cement, when the Spanish frigate received a message that she had been kidnapped.


    After the first reports, in which the circumstances were not clear, Defence worked with the possibility that the police themselves which were guarding him had decided to hijack the merchant.


    The frigate 'Méndez Núñez, who had just completed his second ship escort World Food Program, was appointed to investigate the incident.


    Early on Dec. 19, in a joint operation with another ship deployed in the EU operation Atalanta, the Spanish frigate intercepted the 'Dae San' when navigating in areas held by pirates in northern Somalia.


    The merchant was escorted to his return to Boosaaso, its home port, where local authorities took over the investigation of the incident.

    The Oceanographic Research Vessel SPS 'Hesperides' has arrived at the two Spanish bases in Antarctica, "Juan Carlos I" on Livingston Island and "Gabriel de Castilla" on Decepción Island. On arrival, the Spanish Navy ship proceeded to the discharge of personnel and material required for the opening of the bases.On 17 December, the 'Hesperides' left the southern city of Punta Arenas (Chile). After crossing the Patagonian Channels and the 'Mar de Hoces', reached the South Shetland Islands in the morning of 21, where he made transfers of personnel and material to Argentina scientific base "Carlini" and the Chilean base "Presidente Frei".
    Then sailed for Livingston Island for discharging necessary personnel and material and so proceed with the opening of the base "Juan Carlos I", which this year celebrates 25 years since its founding. Also took the opportunity to move some Bulgarian scientists to base "St. Kliment Ohridski ".
    During the morning of 23 the ship moved to Decepción Island. After inspecting its seismic and volcanic activity, as the island is an active volcano, was proceeded to the discharge of personnel to implement the base "Gabriel de Castilla". In the afternoon we held the act of hoisting the national flag, signaling the beginning of the two Antarctic bases.
