H.M.A.S. Voyager Honour Roll Print Page Print this page


Photographs supplied by John Huth

The honour roll commemorates the sailors who were killed in the sinking of HMAS Voyager on 10th February 1964. 

During the night of 10 February 1964, Voyager and the aircraft carrier HMAS Melbourne collided off Jervis Bay, when the destroyer passed in front of the carrier during post-refit sea trials. Voyager was cut in two by the collision, sinking with the loss of 82 of the 314 people aboard. This was the largest loss of Australian military personnel in peacetime, and the subsequent investigations resulted in the holding of two Royal Commissions - the only time in Australian history this has occurred.
