RFA Navigational Items

Since the creation of the Service in 1905 ships of the RFA have sailed all over the world. In doing so they have found items of navigational interest and the names of the Ships and in one case the Ships Master have been used to ‘name’ these navigational items. If further items are found they will be added to this section.


Wave Gov


In 1949 RFA Wave Governor, while on passage in the Timor Sea, was passing to the south-eastward of Cartier Islet when they discovered a previously unreported bank and thus signalled its location to the Royal Australian Navy.
