Great War-Royal Australian Navy Ltd Ed Medallion SoG 16


The Royal Australian Navy played a vital role throughout the Great War of 1914-1918. At the outset of war command of Australia's fleet was handed to the British Admiralty and the young R.A.N.'s ships and crew spread across the globe. In 1916 much of the role was taken with the routine of patrols to keep sea lanes safe and in supporting the Royal Navy blockades of the German High Seas Fleet and German East African operations. In the North Sea the heavy cruiser H.M.A.S. Australia, flagship of the 2nd Battle Cruiser Squadron of the British Grand Fleet, was destined to fight in the Battle of Jutland of May 1916 but was denied her opportunity when she was rammed by H.M.S. New Zealand on 22 April and forced to undergo repairs. On land the R.A.N. Bridging Train, which had courageously maintained the landing facilities at Gallipoli, continued to serve in the Middle East. Presented in an attractive leatherette box, it includes a certificate of authenticity and Sands of Gallipoli presentation. Only 1,000 units will be released.
