This page is dedicated to those on Eternal Patrol. We wear a badge to pay respect to those submariners that will never ride with us in the flesh, but will always be remembered.
Our badge is modelled on HMAS AE1 which went missing with all hands on 14 September 1914. Her crew of 35 are believed to still be onboard, we look forward to the day our brothers are found.
O Father hear our prayer to thee
For your humble servants
Beneath the sea.
In the depths of oceans as oft they stray
So far from night, so far from day
We would ask your guiding light to glow
To make their journey safe below.
Please oft times grant them patient mind
Then ‘ere the darkness, won’t them blind
They seek thy protection from the deep
Please grant them peace when 'ere they sleep.
Of their homes and loved ones far away
We ask you care for them each day
Until they surface once again
To drink the air and feel the rain.
We ask your guiding hand to show
A safe progression, sure and slow
Dear Lord please hear our prayer to thee
For your humble servants beneath the sea.
