Battle of the Coral Sea Commemorative Service


Townsville will host a memorial service to mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea on Monday 1 May.

The Battle of the Coral Sea, fought between 4 and 8 May 1942, was the first naval battle fought entirely by carrier-borne aircraft in which opposing fleets did not meet.

The service, to be conducted by the Townsville and Districts Sub Section of the Naval Association of Australia, will be supported by the Townsville City Council.
