Pre War

War Service

Mobilised at HMAS Leeuwin on 25 Jun 1945, Rosemary was rated as a Cook Group II (Adult) as she had passed the trade test for cook prior to entry. She was posted to HMAS Lonsdale, a training facility located on Beach Street in Port Melbourne between 10 Jul 1945 and 21 Dec 1945 before returning to HMAS Leeuwin.

While her records are in pencil and difficult to decyper, she appears to have returned to HMAS Lonsdale on 6 Jul 1946 ahead of her discharge on 19 Jul 1946.
