Steel cat: The story of HMAS Brisbane

Ken Doolan

HMAS Brisbane was the third and last American built guided missile destroyer acquired by Australia in the mid 1960s. The warship has the unique distinction of being the only Australian destroyer to have been deployed on active service to two major conflicts during the second half of the twentieth century. She was assigned for active service in the Vietnam War in 1969 and again in 1971. Twenty years later Brisbane was the only Australian destroyer sent to the Persian Gulf during the 1990/1991 Gulf Crisis and Gulf War.
