Comments: The history of Australian Corvettes during World War 2.  

A pictorial remembrance of the 39 Corvettes who came to Fremantle during WWII. Well captioned photos from the West Australian’s archive. Covers the war effort, the Mildura, the Junee and Fremantle, ‘the mothball fleet’, traditions, and those off to the scrap merchants.

Also includes a list of all the corvette negatives in the West Australian’s archive. Now a scarce and highly desirable Royal Australian Navy title.
