  5. Further to Marshal Mo Hare's Australian WWII thread yesterday - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fremantle_submarine_base#:~:text=During the war%2C 127 US,416 patrols during the war. "For a short time towards the end of 1942 the major Submarine Force was based in Brisbane. Over the period 1942-45 both Royal Navy and U.S. Navy were active from Brisbane into the Pacific Ocean and beyond. U.S. submarines undertook 60 war patrols in 1942, another 60 in 1943, 39 in 1944, reducing to 2 in 1945. During the war in Western Australia, 127 US submarines operated from Fremantle, carrying out 353 patrols. Additionally, ten Dutch submarines also operated out of Fremantle and, from August 1944, British submarines also started operating from the base. Altogether, submarines based in Fremantle accounted for 416 patrols during the war". Some excellent reading I can highly recommend are - Sink 'em All - Charles Lockwood Wahoo - Dick O'Kane Thunder Below - Eugene Fluckey Clear the Bridge - Dick O'kane
  6. I think the same thing, we had young soldiers, sailors & airmen fighting in Vietnam (a lot drafted) and the Australian university 'pink lefties' started something that really never went away. At school we saluted the flag every morning, we all new our national anthem etc etc......most all that has been done away with.
