Musician's In Conflict.
Since the birth of the Royal Australian Navy Band in 1913, Musicians have been involved in theatres of war either entertaining or serving in the ships company. From stretcher bearers to lookouts, flight Deck crew to galley staff, bands men and women have served with distinction. Some of the performances have been in the most unusual of places but their aim was to entertain and we achieved this without fanfare.
The following images and stories are by the theatres and their years and will expand as we retrieve more archive material from member and ex members of the RAN band.
