Ship's Company 1942-1945

What follows are regularly updated lists of officers and crew who served in HMAS Castlemaine during World War II. We have checked a number of sources in an attempt to identify the ship’s company of 1942-1945, and have compiled three lists (in PDF format):

Service Certificates and Service Records

The crew lists are a result of ongoing research undertaken by Mr Robert Pearson, Mr Peter Driver and Mr Kerry Hodges, all volunteers of The Maritime Trust of Australia Inc. We do not purport that the information is completely correct – this is a work in progress. (These lists do not include those who served in or trained on HMAS Castlemaine during her time at Flinders Naval Base (HMAS Cerberus) 1955-1969.)

One of the lists is of 'Unidentified' crewmen whom we believe served on HMAS Castlemaine during the war years but have no proof. Some of the service records for these men have been found, but no reference to service on the ship is identified. Others have no records, which may mean that the name is spelt incorrectly. We request all visitors to check the lists and inform us of any errors, and help us identify those names on the 'Unidentified' list.
