    Background: The Indonesian training ship 'Dewa Rutji' left Djakarta's Tanjong Priok Harbour May 10 for a goodwill visit to Australia. The three-month voyage will include calls at Fremantle, Adelaide, Melbourne, Janvis Bay, Sydney, Brisbane, Port Moresby and Darwin.

    Among those who were present at Tanjong Priok to send off the crew were the Australian Ambassador, Mr P. Shaw, the Sultan of Jogjakarta, Brig. Gen. Suhadi, and the Naval Chief of Staff, Commodore R.E. Martadinata. The ship is returning the visit of HMAS 'Melbourne' to Djakarta last year. The trip will also give the cadets training in ocean sailing. 'Dewa Rutji', the 800-ton three masted brigantine, was built in Hamburg and has been Indonesia's training ship since 1954. The Commander for the voyage is Lieutenant Col. Rudi Purwana. The complement includes 70 cadets and six marine scouts.

    This is the first time the ship has visited Australia. It had earlier visited the Philippines, Singapore, Malaya, Thailand, Vietnam, and China.
