Royal Australian Navy Corvettes

In memory of those who served in the 56 Australian Built Corvettes during World War II
1939 - 1945
and the post war crews who were involved in mine sweeping service afloat

1939 - 1945
 

Corvettes
56 gallant little ships of the RAN built very hurriedly in Australian Dockyards during 1939 - 1945
Areas of Service
Pacific, Coral Sea, New Guinea, Timor, Borneo, Mediterranean, Persian Gulf, Indian Ocean, Bay of Bengal Their Job
Mine sweeping, troop convoy and landings, bombarding,
commando support, anti aircraft barrage, hunting hostile submarines and keeping sea lanes open.
The 'bollards' placed on the paved area symbolise those on the "Fo'c'stle" and were the only seats available apart from the deck for the crew to escape the heat and oppression of the Mess decks during their very limited leisure time.
