Iain Steverson: BHP & Other Merchant Navy Ships

Posted on: Mon 8 Mar 2021

Repeat Interview Requested:  In the case of Australian Merchant Ships serving in WW2, one in every 8 of our Merchant Seafarers were lost, yet their service has largely gone forgotten.

Master Mariner Captain (retired) Iain Steverson covers a diverse range of history and stories about the service of our Merchant Navy and its contribution to Australian military history, up to and including the Australian Tankers running to the Persian Gulf during the Iran/Iraq war in the 1980s.
