Leading Seaman Bradley MeekPrint Page
Plaque commemorates Leading Seaman Bradley Meek who was killed with three others when a fire swept through the engine room of the Westralia on the 5th May 1998. He was 25.
On 5 May 1998, a flexible fuel hose in the Westralia`s engine room burst. The spraying fuel ignited when it came into contact with hot machinery, and the first-response extinguishers were unable to cope with the fire's intensity. It took two hours for the fire to be extinguished, and four sailors died from carbon monoxide poisoning.
