Australians of mature years will remember the shock that rippled through the nation when, on a ‘war games’ exercise, HMAS Melbourne and HMAS Voyager collided with each other during complex manoeuvres. Eighty two of the crew of HMAS Voyager were lost when she split in half and sank. HMAS Melbourne (foreground) is shown here during exercises with the United States of America aircraft carrier, USS Midway.
