The Royal Navy Echo-class survery vessel HMS Echo (H 87) sailed into Valletta Port (the Grand Harbour) this afternoon on a courtesy visit.
The British survey vessel is currently deployed in the Mediterranean and assigned to E.U. Naval Force Mediterranean (Operation Sofia).
HMS Echo is presently berthing alongside at Bormla wharf (in French creek), and she's expected to sail from Valletta Port in two weeks time. (4-Feb-2017)
