Diary: The International Fleet Review 2013



Prince Harry reviews global armada in Sydney

I did not understand at first what the big deal was with this event happening right now in my city from October 3rd to the 11th, other than the fact Prince Harry was doing the review this morning on our shore but there was a historical meeting to it only after reading the history tonight after coming home from experiencing the fireworks at Circular Quay. Apparently since October 4th 1913 it was on that day that our Navy returned to the harbour symbolising that Australia was its own sea power and no longer needed assistance from the Commonwealth. This week is celebrating 100 years since that memorable day. And the fireworks showed it was not a let down with the entire city jam packed more so than our New Years eve.
