SNMCMG-2 Visited Patras. But I Don’t Think Allied Maritime Command In Naples Knows It.

Standing NATO Maritime Mine Counter Group 2 ended her visit to in Patras, Greece on 30th October 2012.

It seems that the Public Relations Officer responsible for SNMCMG-2 has gone AWOL. The latest news on the official website is from July 2012. But wait. It get’s better.

The photo of TCG Ayvalık on the Force Composition page shows an entirely different class of Turkish mine hunters. TCG Ayvalık is Aydın class based on German Navy Type 332. The photo of the  Force Composition page shows a Edincik class mine hunter which were bought from France and are known as Circé class there. The crème de la cream is if you click on TCG Ayvalık‘s photo it directs you to the Spanish Navy website.

I guess the PRO’s at MC Naples are still doing bunga bunga parties.

    Public affairs is usually the domain of officers with poor eyesight of general ineptitude. Bottom of the barrel so to speak.
