GOODWILL VISIT

Members of the Philippine Navy band welcome the arrival of Spanish Navy (Armada Española) ship Mendez Nuñez (F-104) for a goodwill visit at the Pier 15, Manila South Harbor on Thursday (September 5, 2019). This is the first visit of a Spanish Navy ship in the country in over a century since the Battle of Manila Bay during the Spanish-American War, that marked the end of Spain’s colonial rule over the Philippines in 1898. JOEY RAZON / PNA – northboundasia.com
