Navy Victoria Network (NVN)

What's it all about?
‘Why didn’t some bastard tell me?’ How often have we heard that – or said it ourselves. Once again we’ve dipped out on some function / event / activity / journal article we would have enjoyed. And why? Simply coz we didn’t know about it!

NVN offers you the chance to put that behind you regarding Navy happenings in Victoria. It is a facility designed by a small team of ex-Navy personnel who are keen to find a way to ensure people interested in Navy goings-on can be kept informed about matters of interest. The NVN will also provide links to Naval and Service Associations / Organisations. Registration for participation ie. to go on the distribution list, costs nothing and no one stands to make money, kudos or rewards of any kind other than the satisfaction of knowing that we’ve done our best to keep people informed. We feel that the camaraderie we enjoyed while serving, and the bonds which exist between seafarers men of all ages can be fostered and strengthened by sharing information by courtesy of this remarkable tool called internet. Currently serving, ex-Navy and others with an interest in maritime matters should all find something of interest.

We aim to keep it simple and uncomplicated so that personnel of all ages, branches and ranks can make use of it, (even ‘fishheads’). We encourage you to access it – if necessary getting grandchildren to show you how. If you feel so inclined we’d welcome your feedback and constructive suggestions by emailing our webmaster at

Yours Aye!
NVN Team

Navy Week Ball
Dear Colleagues,

We are very pleased to share the attached invitation to join the NCCV Organising Committee at what will be a significant Defence related function at the Melbourne Town Hall on Saturday, 21st October 2017.

There are very few formal events arranged for the purpose of Service and Ex-Service men and women, Mariners and others with a keen interest in Defence to gather together socially. This is such an event, the second in the last decade or more organised by the NCCV with specific support from the Royal Australian Navy. With you suport, the 2017 Ball will match the 2015 experience which was a wonderful experience for all that attended.

If you have a noticeboard at your disposal, please print off a copy or ten and place them where others may learn of this opportunity.

Yours aye,
NCCV Executive and the Organising Committee

Bravo Zulu:  Honours and Awards to Australian Naval People 1900-2014
Volume 1, 1900-1974 -
by Ian Pfennigwerth Now on Sale

Between 1900 and 2014 nearly 3,800 Australian naval people received honours and awards for their efforts, courage, sacrifice and service to the nation.  Whether earning a George Cross for defusing mines during the World War II ‘Blitz’ of the UK, an American Silver Star for flying helicopters into intense enemy fire in Vietnam, or a Conspicuous Service Medal for quietly ‘just getting the job done’, these are the stories of the men and women who have been recognised for their service to the Royal Australian Navy.
