May 12, 1972: HMAS STUART [II] and The Great Sembawang Basin Bagpipes War  - Photo HMAS Cerberus Museum.
2879. The peace pipes are blowing. On the superstructure of destroyer escort HMAS TORRENS, the pipes and drums of the 6th Battalion Royal Australian Regiment pipe the destroyer escort HMAS STUART into Sembawang Basin, Singapore. On the gun turret of HMAS STUART herself, the destroyer escort's own piper, Electrical Mechanic Stuart ['Scotty'] McCallum of Christie's Downs, South Australia, wails out his own port entry dirge. All looks fit and proper ...except, why is that kilted Jock down on HMAS STUART, far left, standing there with his fists clenched, and giving the Army pipers a hard stare? The official photo caption doesn't tell us, but it seems there is a brittle peace being made between the clans here - the Army and the Navy clans that is. It all goes back to a balmy night in April [1972], a few weeks before this photo was taken, when HMAS STUART piped herself into the Sembawang Basin and berthed behind the Australian Army Support Ship SIR JOHN MONASH, and the Navy blokes conceived a prank, - a night hull daubing of a nearby Army ship - to which the Army blokes responded a day or so later, stealing STUART's beloved bagpipes. We found this story on ex-CPO Russ Graystone RAN's private RAN website 'The Gun Plot,' which explains all. We hope CPO Graystone and the The Gun Plot's 1000 ex-RAN members won't mind us reproducing this excellent and colourful account, which adds so much more meaning to the photo above. Our photo is an immediate sequel to the events described below. THE RAN 'THE GUN PLOT'S' WEBSITE'S STORY. 'When Captain Ian (RIMPAC) Richards assumed command of [Stuart] early in 1972 he was somewhat obsessed with reviving the flagging Scottish theme. There were two brothers in the R.A.N. at this time bearing the name of McCallum, both using the nickname 'Scotty' of course and they would alternate, turns about, in their postings to the famous No. 48. This was so because both brothers played the bagpipes. It was customary whilst carrying out ceremonial harbour entries and departures for 'the piper' to perch himself atop the 'main armament' (4.5" Gun Turret mounted aft on the fo'c'sle) and play his lungs out on the pipes whilst dressed in full Scottish regalia. RIMPAC even went to the extreme of making all officers wear Tam O'shanters, of the Stuart Tartan, when appearing on the upperdeck during these ceremonial occasions known as Procedure Alpha. It must be noted that most of the sailors were somewhat bemused by this Scottish theme and it must have confused the bejesus out of the local populations of the many ports we visited. 'In the April of 1972 we arrived in Singapore, with flags waving and Bagpipes playing where we berthed alongside in Sembawang Basin with the Australian Army Support Ship SIR JOHN MONASH lying lazily at her moorings in the tropical heat forward of us. JOHN MONASH was a strange little vessel which carried out a support role for the Australian Army in Vietnam. Her poop deck was fitted out with a rattan furniture suite where the Army crew relaxed by day swilling cold cans of ale. Things appeared very layback on this olive drab vessel and the 'Pongo' crew seemed to have a fairly easy lifestyle. 'There was at this time in history a prank the R.A.N sailors used to carry out at every given opportunity, and that was to raid vessels of other navies in the middle of the night, by sea, armed with a paint bucket and brush and perform acts of graffiti upon their hulls. Such as the painting of Kangaroos and comical remarks. JOHN MONASH was not spared this prank and one sultry Singapore morning both crews awoke to see bright orange grafitti plastered all over JOHN MIONASH's olive drab hull. The prank was accepted by all in the spirit of which it was intended. A few nights later a couple of the Army crew from JOHN MONASH wandered over to STUART and casually went down to the "Greenies" Messdeck and asked a couple of the boys where was 'Scotty' McCallum's bunk and locker was. The obliging Greenies present unhesitatingly pointed them in the right direction. Unbeknown to the sailors the Pongos helped themselves to Scotty's bagpipes then proceeded to the Gun Director Deck and knocked off the Gun Director Radar dish cover which was brightly painted with the STUART Crest. This cover also happened to be the Skipper's pride and joy. Not one sailor aboard STUART was aware of this act of 'theft' at this time. A week or so passed and it became time for JOHN MONASH to depart Singapore for Vietnam. Since as how she was berthed in front of STUART she had to steam past us to get out of the basin. The entire crew of STUART mustered upon the upperdeck to witness her departure and as it is customary for warships to exchange ceremonial salutes when passing each other the Captain and all the officers was present to perform this act of nautical courtesy. The 'Still' was piped and all sailors on the upperdeck of STUART were ordered to face to port, stand to attention
Farewell forever! Friday 13th July 1957. Rotterdam
Farewell forever! Friday 13th July 1957. Rotterdam
By Wilhelmina Streckfuss Although this photo was taken on Friday the 13th, we didn't leave until Monday 16th July as the ship we were travelling on kept breaking down. By then, I had no tears left to cry, the anticipation of leaving my homeland of Holland, leaving my father and my friends for the uncertainty of a new life in Australia was heart breaking. It seemed like the end, but it would be a beginning. Pictured here, with my husband Max, our daughter Wil aged 4 and Nick aged 2, the thought of ever returning to Holland again seemed impossible; air travel was incredibly expensive in those days, so once you packed up your life and boarded a ship to settle on the other side of the world, that was it. There was no turning back, even though I would return to Europe for holidays on several occasions later in the piece. The trip from Rotterdam to Melbourne took seven weeks, and there were about 800 people on board. I shared a cabin of bunk beds with another lady and my two children, while my husband was bunked in with the men. They asked for volunteers to teach English on board for the course of the journey, so during the day I would teach English to fellow European ladies, and look after my children on the children's play deck in the afternoon. We would venture down to the bar for drinks at 5pm, and then have dinner, the meals were always very good. We travelled to the West Indies first, and then on through the Panama Canal to Tahiti, then on to Wellington and eventually Sydney and Melbourne. We thought we were going to live in Melbourne, but the flat that our friends had rented for us was in Belgrave. Back then Belgrave had no running water, just tank water. It was going to take three weeks for our furniture to arrive, so luckily we had packed our camping gear in our hand luggage, as we weren't sure if we were going to have a house when we arrived, so we had some cooking utensils with us. There were not many people in Belgrave at the time, but our neighbours were welcoming. I worked as a cleaning lady and would take the children with me to work. My husband's English was very poor, he worked at the General Motors factory in Dandenong. Interestingly television had just come into Australia in 1956 so we decided to buy a television from Patterson's department store in Belgrave so he could improve his English. Suddenly we had a lot of neighbours and friends from the street wanting to drop over and watch the wrestling, In Melbourne Tonight and I Love Lucy, so my husband's English improved, not because of TV but from all the friends dropping around!
