Plaque & Honour Board Dedication

On the 29th. Nov.2009 at 1100hrs at the Maritime Museum South Bank Brisbane, the unveiling of a plaque & plinth and the dedication of an FESR Honour Board to be attached to the fwd. deck bulkhead of the Diamantina will climax another first for the FESR Navy Association QLD. Div. This is the third memorial plaque in QLD. dedicated to the Ships and Crews who served in the Far East Strategic Reserve 1955-1971. It is the first time that one has been erected in a Maritime Museum and the first FESR Honour Board to be placed in a heritage listed naval vessel. The fight for recognition of our service started 11 years ago and while we were successful in some of our initial aims full recognition somehow seems to evade us. These plaque dedication ceremonies are a material way for us to leave a lasting memorial to the future generations and in doing so helps to keep our service in the annals of our countries Naval History. FESR members and friends,ex-naval personal are cordilally invited to attend the ceremony.
