Welcome to the HMAS LEEUWIN

Junior Recruit Training Establishment

Intake No. 15 - April 1966

Reunion Site


In April 1966 just over 100 16 year old boys entered the gates of the Royal Australian Navy’s Junior Recruit Training Establishment at HMAS LEEUWIN in Fremantle, Western Australia.  For many they were embarking on an exciting new challenge to their lives.  Some saw this as a way of escaping the mundane confines of schooling (soon to be severely disappointed) and others to escape the rigours of life at home with few prospects of meaningful employment.

For many, It was an adventure; one to be experienced and savoured at that time.
