Hi , my half brother,Denis Parkes was on board I believe at the tome of the collsion .I have been trying to attach a pic of him on your survivors association but with no joy. The pic I have of him is as a PO.
Any help would be appreciated.
I last met Denis in Sydney when I was HMS victorious when we visited aus in the late 60s.
My name is Narelle Holcomb, I used to be Narelle Cameron and I helped my father, Ken Taylor build the model of HMAS Voyager currently on display at Cockatoo island in Sydney. Ken has since passed away and I now own the model, it was his wish that the model be put up for sale.
As you would be aware the model took some 10 years to build, has over 45,000 seperate parts and is correct in every detail.
I am wonderting if any Association members would be able to assist with the sale and would be glad to hear from you in the near future.

There are 2 photo's of hm n the bar of the Kalbarr Hotel. He was a regular at Happy Hour'
Hi, I'm hoping someone can help. My cousin was lost on the Voyager (Ord Seaman Ronald "Ronnie" WOODWARD) R62486. As a stoker it is thought he would have been on duty when the accident happened.
I would like to create a Memorial badge for Ronnie when I march with my husband who is a Vietnam Vet. While I have his service details - he had just signed up for 9yrs but only served 6mths before the tragedy. My question, does anyone know if he would have been entitled to any medal? Thank You Karen
My name is Mark Manning, the surname may be familiar to some of you, Bernard Manning, known as Bernie to you lot, was my brother. He passed away about 3 years ago and has been intured at HMAS Ceribus in Victoria. I hope I have the correct spelling for that! I don't know when your next runion is, but hope those left are all well.
Hello Les, I am the son of Frank Garforth Harrison who was an Engineer Mechanic on the Voyager when it sunk,he was in hospital at the time and was not on board when the collision took place but sadly passed away on the 12 April 1993 at the age of 64. I can still remember the ship comming into Garden Island and my Mum trying to point him out from the line of crew.
Hello Chris - I am the webmaster and also know Ian very well. In fact Ian and I worked with the same Computer Company in Melbourne for several years before I up and left for the Qld division of the same Company. I do have Ian on my Voyager database and contact details but due to the Governments privacy act I cannot give you those details here but can contact Ian and ask of him if he has no objections to my passing the contact information to you in which case I will email you and provide the information.
Where Fate Calls, the book by Tom Frame, ISBN 0 340 54968 8, lists Ordinary Seaman I.L. Smith as a survivor. I had drafted off before the tragedy, but cannot recollect an Ian Smith from my time in Pussers.
