HMAS CANBERRA - HMAS SHROPSHIRE Association (Tasmania)

The Association was formed in Tasmania in 1958.

The Association was particularly strong in Tasmania, the Association built the HMAS SHROPSHIRE park in ulverston in memory of HMAS SHROPSHIRE and HMAS CANBERRA..

The HMAS CANBERRA - HMAS SHROPSHIRE Association in Tasmania went inactive in 2005

Some members of HMAS CANBERRA 2 now living in Hobart have indicated that they are interested in reactivating the Association, how ever numbers of HMAS CANBERRA 2 personnel in Tasmania are low.

If you are interested in reactivating the Association in Tasmania please contact me and I will assist you.

The plan is to have the Association operating in each state prior to the commissioning of HMAS CANBERRA 3 in 2014.

In addition if you wish to join the Association you are more than welcome to join the WA Division of the Association.
