Australian Navy personnel participated in a service in Indonesia recently to honour the victims of a Second World War tragedy and pay tribute to their legacy.
The nation’s eyes were firmly focussed on the northern capital of Darwin on 19 February as the city paused to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Bombing of Darwin by Imperial Japanese forces.
Outside Darwin’s harbour, a Japanese submarine still lies with her 80-man crew on board.
