In memory of HMS Dunedin and her Men


Welcome to the new website of the HMS Dunedin Society.

The Dunedin Society is our collective organisation designed to keep alive the memories of HMS Dunedin and her men. It is entirely voluntary and free to join. It’s membership is worldwide, ranging from Ireland to Australia, Canada to New Zealand, Bermuda to Saipan and all across the UK. Through the society we have organised many commemorative events covering the annual 24th November ceremonies, the dedication of the permanent Dunedin memorial, our inaugural gathering at Henley in 2001 and the remarkable, extraordinary, reunion with Roy Murray of SS Nishmaha in June 2005.

If you wish to find out more or have any information about HMS Dunedin that we could publicise on our website please Contact Us.
