Edward Chapman - HMAS Moreton
HMAS Moreton was a depot at the North Quay there where the morgue was just near us. North Quay. The navy had the big base there. It had been there since the First World War.
They extended it by putting a few mobile places there for the crews to sleep. Mainly you were there waiting to be transferred to a ship.
I used to stick my hand up to be a volunteer for everything but never got far.
