Our Members who have taken that final voyage across the bar
Rest easy shipmates, your watches are done. Fair winds and calm seas



The Editor of the Naval Association of Australia , White Ensign Magazine (WEM), would like to formally apologise to former member of the Gold Coast Sub-section, Mr Gary Brazier and his Family, for a serious error published in the Red Watch 2022 (Summer Edition) of the WEM. Unfortunately, an error within the reporting of the VALE section indicated that Mr. Brazier had crossed the bar. This statement was incorrect and it is most pleasing to report the good health of Mr Brazier continues.

The WEM Publication Sub-committee regrets any concern or embarrassment suffered by Mr Brazier and his family through this error. Corrective action has been taken within the reporting system of the NAA membership data to ensure this error cannot happen into the future.
