Above: Remembering "Mr Moruya", Ron Chesher OAM WW2 PNG Veteran (RIP) pictured here with Rev Linda Chapman OAM at the Moruya RSL. MORUYA: The very first "DUSK SERVICE" at the going down of the sun .... will take place at the World War 2 RAAF Bunkers on the 25th of April 2021. Organisers say "Some of you will be surprised to learn that during the Second World War, three Merchant Sailors (fishermen) were killed by a Japanese submarine, just off Moruya on 3rd August 1942. They now lie buried in Moruya Cemetery. Another Merchant Vessel, the SS Robert J. Walker was sunk on Christmas Eve of 1944 off Wallaga Lake with the loss of two crew members." "The Moruya Remembers Committee felt it would be appropriate for an official wreath to be laid by a local member of the Merchant Navy, either current serving or retired .... in honour of these three men and the U.S. Crewmen of the Robert J. Walker lost on board . "Both sets of crewmen will now be officially remembered during this first official Dusk Service. Again, my eternal thanks to those who have come forward and nominated for this roll. Lest We Forget. ................." Please visit the Facebook Page "When War Came to Moruya" for updates and further details, directions etc. in the lead up to ANZAC Day or contact Gary Traynor on ph. 044 969 2401. All members of the public welcome.
