SPANISH ARMADA IN FREMANTLE

The unusual sight of two Spanish navy ships in Fremantle port attracted a few people this afternoon.

The Dutchy in me always thinks of the Spanish Armada and remembers the Spanish occupation of the Netherlands a trillion years ago, so I blame my history teacher for the trauma. ; >)

I don’t know what WELCOME in Spanish is, but I hope to see a lot of the sailors at the Roundhouse on Thursday when I am on volunteer guide duty.

    But both built by Spanish designer Navantia.

    Bienvenidos is what you’re looking for.

    I’ve always been worried about a South Australian Armada as well. ; >)

    Thanks for the correction!

    Only the destroyer, SPS Cristobal Colon, is Spanish. The big flat-top is HMAS Adelaide.
