HMAS Stir­ling com­mand­ing of­fi­cer Capt. Brian De­la­m­ont said it was im­por­tant for peo­ple to know the ser­vices that were of­fered on the is­land.

“This can be an is­land of mys­tery for a lot of peo­ple on the main­land some­times so it’s a chance to get the fam­i­lies down and it’s a re­ally fun day for ev­ery­body,” he said.

“A lot of the fam­i­lies on the base don’t come from WA and don’t have a sup­port net­work in the area so we’re re­ally com­mit­ted to look­ing af­ter them.”
