Dan O’Brien: Norah Head Memorial Service

Posted on: Mon 2 Jan 2023

It’s always a touching, sombre event for attendees at the annual Norah Head Memorial Service commemorating Australia’s Merchant Mariners lost in times of war.  A fitting tribute to our seafarers, many of whom made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation.  Most were never formally recognised for their important wartime role. Today we hear from Daniel O’Brien OAM; David Burchell; George Murray; Iain Steverson; Shamus O’ Reilly;  Mr David Harris MP;  Ms Yasmin Catley MP.
