The story behind Australia’s first submarine, which disappeared in 1914, is told in an exhibition at the Portland Library.  War at Sea – the Navy in WWI is on tour from the Australian National Maritime Museum and tells servicemens stories through their diaries, mementos, ship’s logs and letters home. Retired Portland seaman will provide a snapshot of defence life at a talk on November 17. The free exhibition runs until November 19.
