War at Sea draws on the personal accounts of WWI Navy servicemen – through their diaries, mementoes, ship’s logs and letters home – to tell their incredible stories of bravery and sacrifice amidst the drudgery of life at sea, patrolling, blockading and escorting troopships. It also explores the mystery surrounding the loss of Australia’s first submarine AE1 and the role of the Royal Australian Bridging Train at Gallipoli in 1915.

The exhibition consists of eight display panels and four short videos which delve into different aspects of the Navy’s involvement in the Great War, largely through the voices of the servicemen who were there. The museum also makes available education kits about the exhibition for your local school to learn more about the stories behind the exhibition.
