Join us at week's close to honour those who have served and sacrificed so that we may enjoy our lives of relative peace, comfort and freedom.

Each Sunday we pause to remember a different event from Australia's military history. We remember the men and women who took part in those events, and the lives lost or forever changed.

Today we remember the the sinking of HMAS Yarra. On 4 March, 1942, she was sunk by a Japanese cruiser squadron in the Indian Ocean, south of Java. 138 of the 151 men on board were killed.
