Dedication

Front Inscription

In memory of Alan Oliver
(1930 - 2009)

A proud seaman who was a pilot, a soldier, an author, a historian but most of all a seafarer, an internationalist and a humanitarian.

Alan was a driving force in developing this memorial to seafarers that commemorates their contribution to the development and defence of Australia in peace and war.

He was a passionate advocate of Australia's recognition of International Maritime Day.
