: In December 2016, the Australian National

: Both ships were lost in battle during World

: They sunk in what is now Indonesian waters —
: Houston with almost 650 sailors and marines,

: director of the Naval History and Heritage
: The staff of ANMM is working with NHHC to

: “We’re grateful to the Australian National

: With the 75th anniversary of the Battles of
