COCCAMPMADLA SMALLStavanger --- Today's short but very stylish ceremony at the Naval Basic Training Centre Harald Haarfagre (Camp Madla) bid farewell to its Commander since September 2011, Commander Per Skjegstad, and welcomed his successor, Navy Captain Tor Fredrik Johannessen.

In his inaugural speech, Captain Johannessen said that it was with the deepest respect and humility that he was taking over the command of a highly skilled unit. Amongst the important tasks he will focus on are the continued cooperation with the Joint Warfare Centre (JWC) and the provision of Host Nation Support.

German Army Major General Erhard Buehler, Commander JWC and Norwegian Army Colonel Kurt Gimre, JWC Director of Management, participated in the ceremony, representing NATO.
