Have you been following the progress of WWII Ship HDML 1321?
Were you wondering if HDML 1321 would be destroyed before Remembrance Day?
If you've been keeping up to date on the SAVE 1321 page you will already know that she has the Darwin Port doing their best to rescue her!
Although she has faced a few obstacles in being lifted to dry land, it seems the Harbour Defence Motor Launch 1321 knows her place in history and how she played a significant role in WWII transporting the Z Special Unit Commandos for Operation Copper and as such intends to make a splash by being lifted from the water on this special day, Remembrance Day.
Now the fund-raising can begin in earnest to restore this special part of history as a permanent tribute to the Z Special Commandos. You can help by sharing this post, donating directly to Save1321, hosting a fund-raising event in your local area or donating a raffle prize.
