The history of the HMAS Perth II (DDG 38)

Following her commissioning at Boston, Massachusetts, Perth (II) spent eight months in American waters conducting trials and exercises. On 12 February 1966 she sailed for Australia arriving at Perth, WA on 4 March where she was granted Freedom of Entry to the city.

During September 1967-April 1968; September 1968-April 1969 and September 1970-April 1971, Perth (II) served as a unit of the US Seventh Fleet operating off the coast of Vietnam providing naval gunfire support to land forces. The ship was awarded the United States Navy Unit Commendation following her first deployment, and the United States Navy Meritorious Unit Commendation after her second deployment.

In all, Perth (II) steamed over 149,000 miles on active service during the Vietnam War, fired some 30,711 five-inch rounds and came under fire on five occasions. More information on HMAS Perth‘s deployment to Vietnam can be found in the publication ‘Australia’s Navy in Vietnam’.

Over 7000 officers and sailors served in Perth (II) during her period of service. She steamed over one million miles during her career and she won numerous fleet awards for excellence; including the prestigious Duke of Gloucester’s Cup, in 1981, as the most proficient ship in the Fleet. Perth (II) had grace, speed and power, and the capacity to turn heads with her fine lines and is fondly remembered as one of Navy’s quiet achievers.

In 2001 Perth (II) was sunk as a dive site near Albany, Western Australia.
