More information

This Remembrance Service is dedicated to the service and sacrifice of Australian merchant seamen who manned ships in all parts of the world during the First and Second World Wars. The support these men provided was vital to the success of the war effort. Merchant ships carried essential supplies and troops, but were vulnerable to  enemy attack because they were generally slow, poorly armed and often loaded with dangerous cargoes.
