HMAS AE 1 Submarine 2006 cover

Special cover to commemorate the loss of HMAS AE1 Submarine & crew of the coast of Papua New Guinea on 14th September 1914. Cover cancel Garden Island on 14th September 2006.

HMAS AE1 (originally known as just AE1) was an E-class submarine of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). She was the first submarine to serve in the RAN, and was lost at sea with all hands near East New Britain, Papua New Guinea, on 14 September 1914, after less than seven months in service. The wreck of the submarine has never been found.

Would love to get my hands on the FDC.
