BRP Del Pilar in Boracay for ‘show the flag’ mission

June 8, 2017

BORACAY ISLAND, Aklan, June 8 -- The Philippine Navy’s BRP Gregorio del Pilar is in Boracay on Thursday for a “show the flag” mission to display the navy’s capability in responding to any maritime threats.

The Philippine frigate carrying more than 100 marine officers conducted patrols around the island and its immediate vicinity.

Commodore Loumer Bernabe, commander of the Naval Forces Central and Maritime Joint Task Force “Area Shield” said the activity aimed to showcase the navy’s capability to respond to threats, including terrorism.

Bernabe said Boracay was one area of concern being a top tourist destination. Prior to Boracay, the navy docked in Davao and Surigao in Mindanao.

He said it was also in support of the continued maritime security operation in the island, in line with the mandate of the local group, the Joint Task Force Boracay.

“This is to show to the people of Boracay and its stakeholders that the Philippine Navy is ready to respond to any maritime challenge,” Bernabe said.

The command group of the frigate led by Capt. Francisco Cacho docked in Boracay on Wednesday and will leave Friday.

After Boracay, the frigate will be going to other parts of Visayas, according to Bernabe.

Meanwhile, another patrol vessel will be sent to Boracay on Friday, Bernabe said. “This will be an addition to the two existing vessels of the Navy here,” he said.

Bernabe said Navy SEALs officers, who are trained for special operations, would also be deployed to Boracay next week. (Karen Bermejo/PNA)

Pollywogs start its initiation rite

It is not just an experience of a multilateral naval exercise outside the country but an opportunity to be involved in one of the unique naval tradition, the “Crossing the Line Ceremony.” This is how the PN contingent feels when the flag ship of the Philippine Navy, BRP GREGORIO DEL PILAR came closer to the Equator line.

As it getting nearer, the “Shellbacks” who have “crossed the line” started the conduct of the “initiation” rites to all “Pollywogs.”

The “Pollywogs,” who have not yet crossed the line was led by the Commander Naval Task Force 83, Capt Danilo G Fuentes Jr PN (GSC). Usually, this ceremony in the Philippine Navy involves a series of physical exercises and inflicts severe physical discomforts.

As the “initiation” started, all of the Pollywogs experienced the unpleasant features of the initiation. This will continue until the time where the ship crosses the equator.

This tradition may have originated with ceremonies to become a “folly” sanctioned in order to boost morale, or to serve as a test for seasoned sailors to ensure their new shipmates were capable of handling long rough times at sea.

Ship’s riders’ trains for Survival

Commanding Officer, BRP Gregorio del Pilar (FF15), Cmdr Santiago Pacis Jr PN (GSC) emphasizes the importance of emergency preparedness during the ship’s voyage to participate in the multilateral naval exercise codenamed, KOMODO 2018.

“It is our responsibility to remain prepared for emergencies, everyone must learn how to survive in the ship,” he stated.

Members of the PN contingent experienced how to use personal protective of equipment such as Emergency Escape Breathing Device (EEBD) and Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA). This was followed by demonstration of different fire fighting tactics to combat fire.
