Use this page to enter some details of a mate or oppo from a previous HMAS PERTH crew, you're hoping to locate.  Your own details will be published, so if you don't want this, please don't try to search for someone.  Please DO NOT include personal details of the person you're searching for, such as a phone number or street address - if this is included, the entry will be deleted when noticed.  Also, please do not include any of your own personal details other than that requested below. You must include your correctly formatted & valid email address - your (Australian) phone number is optional.

Please keep your search requests to those who have served in HMAS PERTH - as those who have not served in PERTH would probably not be known by the majority of visitors to this site.

Entries more than three months old will be deleted to conserve space, unless deleted earlier at the author's request.
