The Video has been Compiled by the RAN Video unit, located on Garden Island Sydney . We will enjoy episodes one and two. Episode one traces the genesis of the RAN from the first European exploration through to the early 20th century, as the Colonies evolve towards a collective national identity, forming Navies of their own, of various sizes, whilst under the overall protection of the Royal Navy. Episode two covers from when war was declared in August 1914 and our fledgling RAN experienced its baptism of fire. Operating in the North Sea, Mediterranean, Pacific, the Far East and Indian Oceans, Australian ships and men fight alongside their Allied counterparts, recording  both thrilling victories and tragic losses.In the crucible of total and catastrophic war. Australian sailors, like their ANZAC’s ashore, will forge whar will become a unique and national consciousness. Our Navy video unit has done an excellent job of episodes one and two, and we look forward with eager anticipation to Volume Two of the History of the RAN.
