Chief of Joint Operations, Vice Admiral David Johnston, said Toowoomba’s deployment provided an opportunity to further strengthen a military to military relationship with the Royal Brunei Armed Forces.

"Toowoomba’s visit to Brunei included an official function with local dignitaries and members of the Armed Forces, and a roundtable discussion on maritime security," VADM Johnston said.

At the Anzac Day dawn service, personnel from HMAS Toowoomba provided a catafalque party and the ship’s company lined the beach which was the site of HMAS Kanimbla landings on 10 June 1945.

VADM Johnston said it was an honour to commemorate the Australian military personnel who fought in Brunei during World War II.

"Our continued presence in south-east Asia demonstrates our commitment to regional security and partnerships and builds on the contributions made by our predecessors," he said.
