H.M.S. Delhi WindowPrint Page Print this page

The stained glass window of St Peter was presented by the officers and men of H.M.S. Delhi  in memory of their comrades who died serving in the Royal Australian Navy during World War One. The window is part of the Royal Australian Navy Fleet Memorial.

MELBOURNE, November 24. The special memorial to the men of the Royal Australian Navy who died on service during the war, which has been erected at the Flinders Naval Base, Melbourne, by the men of the Navy, was dedicated today by the Archbishop of Melbourne (Dr. Harrington Lees), and unveiled by the Governor General (Lord Stonehaven). The memorial is the only one in Australia dedicated to the officers and men of the Fleet, and the depot was chosen for its erection, because it is the one place that all ranks visit at some period of their service. No public appeal was made to defray the cost; it is a memorial subscribed to by the men in the Fleet to the men of the Fleet. Today's ceremony,which was simple in nature, was attended by a large gathering representative of the Navy, the Army, and the Royal Air Force. The memorial takes the form of tablets and stained glass windows in the sanctuary of the chapel.
