I hope you can share ship stories as well sir. We've heard very little about sailors and the PN since the forum went online.  :beer:

Government press release

SEVEN (7) ALLEGED VIETNAMESE VESSELS CAUGHT POACHING
By: LTCOL OMAR L TONSAY PN(M)(GSC)
Director, Naval Public Affairs Office

http://www.navy.mil.ph/news.php?news_id=331

Seven (7) alleged Vietnamese fishing vessels (F/V) were caught poaching at approximately 2 Nautical Miles North East off Brgy. Tamburok, Balabac, Palawan on May 30, 2011. The apprehension was made possible through the initiative of the Commanding Officer of Naval Station Narciso Del Rosario (NSNDR), Naval Forces West.

According to the report, NSNDR personnel while on Seaborne Patrol at around 09:30 in the morning on said date spotted the said fishing vessels fishing within our territorial waters. MAJ FERDINAND ATOS, the Commanding Officer of NSNDR immediately coordinated with the Local Government of Balabac, MBLT-12, Philippine Coast Guard (PCG), Philippine National Police (PNP), Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) to conduct joint operations for possible apprehension.

The seven (7) alleged Vietnamese vessels were observed with hoisted Philippine Flag when they were apprehended while Vietnamese flags were found folded and tied below, perhaps, to hide their identity as foreign vessels. Said vessels were identified through marks as F/V Z-M001 (with 17 crew), F/V Z-M002 (with 17 crew), F/V Z-M003 (with 18 crew), F/V Z-M004 (with 20 crew), F/V Z-M005 (with 16 crew), F/V Z-M006 (with 18 crew) and F/V Z-M007 (with 16 crew) with a total of 122 crew onboard seven vessels. During inspection, the operatives found fish nets, air compressor, fish finder and other fishing paraphernalia onboard with cargo hatches loaded with assorted species of fish

The seven (7) fishing vessels will be escorted underway by BRP Benguet (LT507) and BRP Juan Magluyan (PG392) all their way to Puerto Princesa City for the filing of case against them for Poaching under Section 87 of RA 8550.

COMMODORE EDGARDO D TAMAYO AFP, Naval Forces West Commander said “Naval Forces West as an advocate of Palawan in environmental preservation and protection, shall continue to strictly enforce laws, perform its mandate as the Navy in the West and as partner of Palawan towards peace and development”. He also added that once again, the Naval Forces West employs the concept of BAYANIHAN through inter-agency operability/ joint efforts, close coordination and participation among involved agencies and the community that will result to swift and effective delivery of basic services for the province.

Phl sending more troops to Spratlys
By Jaime Laude (The Philippine Star) Updated June 21, 2011 12:00 AM Comments (36) 

MANILA, Philippines - A Philippine Navy supply ship has reached Pag-Asa Island in the Kalayaan Island Group in the Spratlys and has unloaded troops and fresh provisions.

The BRP Benguet (LST 507) dropped anchor off Pag-Asa Island the other day but has yet to complete unloading its cargo of food and other supplies due to bad weather, according to a source.

“Our Navy supply ship arrived there the other day but it is still unloading supplies,” the Palawan-based source told The STAR yesterday.

Reviewing some of the available printed references got me confused. Both Janes (2004) and USNI-Combat Fleets (2006) had pointed out that LT-507 Benguet had been declared in BER (Beyond Economic Repair) condition in 2000 after it run aground in KIG in Nov 1999.   

But Benguet was again available per our photos by June 2008.  Considering that these naval publications are quite respectable in terms of info, any repair or rebuild would happen only between 2005 and 2008. 

Maybe Sir Lagim_29 or anyone can shed more light in this gap?

i saw  benguet  on dry dock at navship early 2005 and laid down later that year, so it must be dry docked late 2004.

LST 507 is operational as of today as my son is assigned to this ship. She is responsible for ferrying supplies and troops in the WPS.

BRP Benguet (LT507) Ferries Palarong Panlalawigan Delegates to Cuyo

By: LIEUTENANT NOEL JOSEPH B CADIGAL PN
NFW Public Affairs Officer

http://www.navy.mil.ph/news.php?news_id=379

BRP Benguet (LT507) left Puerto Princesa City this morning, November 14, 2011, with 1,600 students and sports officials that comprises the athletic delegations coming from the different municipalities of Palawan. These delegations will compete on the Palarong Panlalawigan 2011 which will be held in the island municipality of Cuyo. LT507 departed 6 o’clock this morning and is expected to arrive in Cuyo at 6 o’clock the following day.

The vessel was requested by the provincial government of Palawan to alleviate the requirements of the delegations who will participate on the athletic meet in Cuyo. The ferry mission will be exclusive for the athletes and sports officials that are mostly coming from mainland Palawan. The Palarong Panlalawigan will be held on November 19 to 24, 2011.

The Philippine Navy through Naval Forces West (NFW) supports the Palarong Panlalawigan not only by providing transportation but also by ensuring the safety of the delegates. In fact, a group of NFW personnel will be sent along with LT507 to mainly look after the civilian passengers while in transit to Cuyo Island and back. Moreover, these personnel will also be conducting civic action programs in tandem with the local government of Cuyo.

BRP Benguet will ferry back the athletes to Puerto Princesa on November 25, 2011.

BRP Benguet (LT507) left Puerto Princesa City at around 6 o’clock this morning, November 14, 2011, for Cuyo in connection with the Palarong Panlalawigan. LT507 departed with 1,600 students and sports officials that comprises the athletic delegations coming from the different municipalities of Palawan. She is expected to arrive in the municipality of Cuyo at around 6 o’clock in the morning the following day.
