This website is owned and maintained by the Maritime Trust of Australia, custodians of HMAS Castlemaine. It was originally built by Grant Hunter, with appreciated assistance from Sean Oliver and Alan Kuras. The content was written by Grant Hunter and Chris Burgess, updated by Peter Driver. The website has been updated and maintained by Kate Lance at lancewood.net since 2013.
The Maritime Trust of Australia would like to extend its sincere thanks to Andrew Follows for donating his time and expertise to capture many of the photographs displayed upon these pages. More of Andrew’s work can be viewed at www.blinkiephotography.com.au. Various other photos courtesy of the Argus Newspaper, Grant Hunter and the Maritime Trust of Australia.
Much of the information on this site is courtesy of interviews with surviving Corvette veterans who saw active war service between 1939 and 1945. Many thanks to Jack Pearce, Ian Shackleton, Alf 'Bluey' Thornton and Keith Williams.
The Maritime Trust of Australia would further like to acknowledge the support and generosity shown by our many donors and visitors, without whom this memorial to the sacrifice and service of the men and women of the Royal Australian Navy, would not exist.
