Comments: “Whether it be a George Cross for defusing mines during the World War II blitz of the UK, an American Silver Star for flying helicopters into intense enemy fire in Vietnam, or a Conspicuous Service Medal for quietly? Just getting the job done? These are the stories of the men and women who have been decorated for their service to the Royal Australian Navy.
Some stories are mundane, but give the public an insight into the daily running of our Navy. Others, whose feats of courage under fire or bravery in risking their own lives in saving the lives of others, on and off duty, are truly inspiring. Between 1900 and 2014 over 3,750 Australian naval people received awards for their efforts, courage, sacrifice and service to the nation. Most of their feats have remained untold until now. This book tells the stories of the brave, the inspiring and the dedicated servicemen and women whom have gone above and beyond their call of duty.”
