AIMS PAYS TRIBUTE TO AUSTRALIAN MERCHANT MARINERS

28 Oct 2019 1:31 PM | Anonymous

On Sunday the 20th October the new and remedial works to our National Merchant Navy War Memorial were unveiled by Senator, The Honorable Linda Reynolds CSC, Minister for Defence and Senator for Western Australia.

The ceremony took place at the Merchant Navy Memorial at Kings Park on Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra and AIMS President Peter Murday and CEO Susan Hull were invited to lay a wreath in honour of those who served during the Great War on troop carriers taking our men from Australia to Europe and to those who lost their lives.

It was a honour to be able to participate in this ceremony said Murday and we thank David Field from the Merchant Navy Memorial Fund for his very kind invitation and the opportunity for us to pay our respects on behalf of our members.

The Merchant Navy Memorial Fund vision is to ensure that the Australian Merchant Navy "A title emblazoned in battle and honoured in freedom" is recognised as an important part of Australian Maritime History and Social Culture.

This fund will be the AIMS charity for 2020 and we hope to support it's good works.
