Bravo Zulu.

The traditional naval signal sent by flags or voice radio to signify “Well Done” sped out to the frigate HMCS Toronto early Friday morning.

The warship successfully disrupted a major narcotics shipment during a patrol in the Arabian Sea and in doing so claimed the single biggest heroin seizure in the history of Combined Maritime Forces operations.

The drug bust off the east coast of Africa yielded 506 bags of heroin weighing more than 538 kilograms.
