Ship Histories

Select from the list below to view ship data and historical facts of past RAN vessels.

We apologise if a ship you are particularly interested in is not on this list. Our Naval History Section continues to work on updating this list, however researching each individual ship history is an involved process that entails reviewing monthly Reports of Proceedings and official logs for each year of a ship's commission. Often this material can span a period of greater than 20 years and it takes considerable time to review it and author an accurate history suitable for publication. Your patience in this matter is appreciated.
