Comments: Royal Australian Navy – Tally Band – HMAS Swan – circa 1970s.
HMAS Swan (DE 50), named for the Swan River, was a River-class destroyer escort of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). Constructed in Melbourne following the loss of HMAS Voyager, Swan entered service in 1970, and remained in commission until 1996. Swan was sunk as a dive wreck off the coast of Dunsborough, Western Australia at the end of 1997.
Now a scarce and highly desirable RAN tally.
