Synopsis
Revised Edition

HMAS Diamantina was an exceptional ship. Built in a country town for the front line of action in World War Two, she held the unique honour of hosting three surrender ceremonies at the end of the Pacific war. Many years later she began a new life of scientific research in the ocean depths along with more varied naval tasks. Diamantina finally retired last of her illustrious class after 35 years. She is on permanent display at the Queensland Maritime Museum in Brisbane.

Critique
Peter Nunan has comprehensively researched Diamantina’s fascinating story, and tells it well: a great book about a remarkable ship. - David Jones Maritime historian & author
