Operation Navy Help

This video recounts some of the Royal Australian Navy's activities in the aftermath of Cyclone Tracy which struck Darwin with devastating effect on Christmas Eve 1974. The RAN committed ships, aircraft and people to assist in recovery efforts. Darwin's mayor, Harry 'Tiger' Brennan' later said "We owe the Navy the greatest debt of all."
