"The Type 23 frigate (HMS Grafton) slipped into
the Operation Telic programme, taking over from sister ship HMS Norfolk
at the beginning of March, and within days had visited Muscat in Oman
and the great seaport of Karachi in Pakistan.
As the first British warship to call in for some time Grafton caused
something of a stir, especially as the visit coincided with that by
First Sea Lord Admiral Sir Alan West, reinforcing the strong ties
between the Royal Navy and Pakistan Navy - which operates a number
of former RN Leander and Type 21 frigates.
On sailing Grafton conducted a range of seamanship, navigational and
seamanship exercises with host ship PNS Tariq, the former HMS Ambuscade."
