Spring 2004

"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."
