Commissioned 18/4/1969
Now preserved at the Western Australian Maritime Museum at Fremantle.

In 1985, off the island of Kauai in Hawaii, HMAS Ovens became only the second conventional submarine in the world—and the first Oberon—to fire a sub-surface-launched Harpoon missile, successfully hitting the target over the horizon. Consequently, the designation for the Australian Oberons changed from SS to SSG.

Interesting, I have the exact same photo. Howard Dunn took this in Tauranga but I can't remember the exact date. Our school took a trip down and got a tour of her.

Regards Robbie
