Donations to the Naval Historical Society of Australia will support our mission, “to record, preserve and promote knowledge, understanding and awareness of Australian naval history at all levels of the national community”. We do this by providing information on naval historical matters, conducting, facilitating and encouraging research and writing on naval historical matters. We provide a free research service, produce video documentaries, publish a monthly newsletter and continuously enhance this website with newly published stories.
