Message We worked with the Perth off the coast of Vietnam in 1970 and 1971. I was part of an exchange of personnel from USCG Cutter Morgenthau (WHEC 722). What a great experience. I remember them painting "Pink" kangaroos around our waterline and we retaliated by painting "White" Sharks with 722 around theirs. They took their job very seriously and so did we. Have a "Fosters" for me.

Message Hi all from the 'sunny' uk

I'm trying to find out a bit more about a Vietnam era resuce incident involving the PERTH. It occurred on 1st Nov 1968 when a USMC F-4 was hit on a mission over NVN - The crew both ejected at sea (Pilot CPT George S LIBEY / RIO CPT William H FRIZELL). There are conflicting reports but it appears that the Pilot was recovered by a USN Helo & the RIO by the PERTH. Other accounts say both were picked up by helos & that the PERTH rendered direct assistance. Does anyone have any further info on this and/or photos of the incident?

Any help gratefully received

I can be contacted on

Best Regards

Message I was looking at the Navy Stokers site to read that they intend holding a Stokers reunion in Albany in November 2014 to coincide with the100th anniversary of ships departing for Gallipoli. As such, to all you ex Stokers out there, I hope you can attend......I'll be caravaning over there, and I hope to catch up then.

Message My grandfather, Donald McEachern HADDOW of Hastings Vic, was a diver on the first Perth. On the 22nd of April 1941 in Suda Bay he was working on the wreck of the HMS York and had finished a dive and had removed his helmet but not his lead boots. A bombing raid started and a bomb landed near the dive tender causing it to capsize. My grandfather was thrown into the water and the lead boots caused him to drown. He is mentioned in George Hatfield's diaries. I was hoping someone else may have some information on his Naval career they could share with me.
Don (Donald McE Haddow Jnr).
