HMAS Sheean has recently returned to Fleet Base West after close to a four-month deployment, to the delight of waiting families and friends.

Sheean’s Commanding Officer, Commander Darren White, said while submariners expected to spend a lot of time at sea, coming home was always a highly anticipated event.

“Just knowing that your family is waiting for you at home makes our job a lot easier,” CMDR White said.

“Their staunch support while the submarine is deployed, and the knowledge that everything at home is being looked after, allows us to get on with the tasks that we have been assigned.”

Among those that welcomed Sheean back was Chief of Navy, Vice Admiral Michael Noonan, and Commander Submarine Force, Captain Doug Theobald.
