Merchant Navy Print Page
Memorial plaques commemorate the service of the Merchant Navy and those who gave their lives in both World Wars.
During the Second World War Merchant Navy ships carrying valuable cargoes were at just as much risk as Royal Australian Navy (RAN) warships. Merchant ships were attacked not only in distant waters but also within sight of the Australian coastline while traversing much frequented trade routes.
