This series comprises the Reports of Proceeding (ROPS) created by the units of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) from the Second World War until the 1970s. Reports of Proceedings (ROPs) are the official record of activities of the Royal Australian Navy's commands, vessels, shore establishments, administrative authorities and installations.
There are Reports of Proceedings from five general navy groups, Commands; Vessels and groups of vessels (e.g. squadrons, flotillas), Administrative authorities (e.g. Naval Officer in Charge, Flag Officer Commanding), Shore establishments and Miscellaneous. The types of information found in ROPs typically include events of `historical significance'; dates of arrival at, and departure from places visited; details of ships in company; visits and official calls; outstanding incidents; details of operations, and the state of the ship and its company. Some ROPs may also include photographs.
