Reports of Proceedings, HMA Ships and Establishments

To mark the 100th anniversary of the formation of the Royal Australian Navy, the Australian War Memorial is digitising one of its most used naval archival series, AWM78 Reports of Proceedings, HMA Ships and Establishments.

The Royal Australian Navy’s Reports of Proceedings are the official record of activities of commands, vessels, shore establishments, administrative authorities and installations from 1939 onwards.

From Monday 11 July 2011, the Memorial will be publishing online the records of the first 50 ships that we have digitised. Researchers around the world can start accessing this important collection directly from the Memorial’s website.
