A memorial to the graduates of the United States Army Small Ships Apprentice Seamanship School and the war in the Pacific. The memorial remembers 21 Australian merchant seamen lost their lives and honours the 3000 Australians and their shipmates who served in the US Army Small Ships of World War Two.
The Small Ships were manned by merchant seamen who risked their lives to sail small ships into dangerous areas inaccessible by large ships, carrying troops, delivering arms, ammunition, fuel, medical supplies and food.
