The corvette Armidale was lost to enemy air attack in the Arafura Sea during December, , while reinforcing Australian Army forces in Timor. December, marked the beginning of the long series of amphibious operations which finally defeated the enemy forces in the South West Pacific. During the invasion of the Philippine Islands, Australian cruisers, destroyers and landing ships took part in the operations off Leyte Island in October, Australia suffered damage when struck by an enemy aircraft and sustained 30 fatal casualties - including her Commanding Officer - and a number of wounded.
Shropshire and Arunta also took part in the Battle of Surigao Strait later in the month. In January, Australian cruisers took part in the invasion of Luzon Island. Australia , which had been repaired was again damaged, this time by five enemy suicide aircraft, and extensive repairs were necessary. Following Japan's entry into the war, the five ''N'' and two ''Q'' Class destroyers together with 13 corvettes served with various British Commands, mainly with the Mediterranean and Eastern Fleets.
Some of them took part in operations such as the invasions of Madagascar and Sicily, and in the landings in North Africa; others assisted the great Russian drives by carrying out monotonous but valuable escort work in the Persian Gulf, the southern point of entry for war material destined for Russia. The destroyers took their part in fighting the convoys through to Malta, enabling that fortress to withstand the heaviest air attacks the Italians and Germans could inflict on it.
It was after the crucial Malta convoy battle in June, , that the destroyer Nestor , while returning to Alexandria, was sunk by enemy aircraft. During the last year of the war, the "N" and "Q" destroyers and 18 corvettes 21st and 22nd Minesweeping Flotillas were attached to the British Pacific Fleet. These ships, and the 3, personnel involved, were additional to the Australian warships and men serving under American operational control in the South-West Pacific area.
All the ships formed part of the Task Units, British Pacific Fleet, and were engaged in the Fleet Train or on screening duties for carrier-borne operations against the Japanese mainland. After the surrender of Japan the 21st and 22nd Minesweeping Flotillas, together with 8 other corvettes, were engaged in minesweeping activities at Hong Kong and off the China Coast.
Early in the war there occurred a series of daring attacks on passenger and cargo ships by German surface raiders which also shelled Nauru and laid minefields in our coastal waters. Generally operating as a trio, they ranged over waters east and south of Australia for a period of slightly more than six months. They sank a total of 10 ships, including the 16, ton passenger-liner Rangitane ; they also laid minefields which were responsible for the loss of four ships and damage to a fifth. After sinking five ships in the Nauru area early in December, , one of the raiders heavily shelled the phosphate loading equipment at Nauru, and the Manyo Maru and the Tokyo Maru landed prisoners on Emiran Island.
These survivors reached Australia by rescue ship on 1st January, The next intrusion into the shipping lanes along the east coast of Australia occurred after the Coral Sea Battle, when Japanese naval operations south of the equator were confined to attempts to cut Allied lines of communication by submarine attacks.

On the night of 31st May, , Japanese midget submarines attacked shipping in Sydney Harbour, sinking the naval depot ship Kuttabul , a former Sydney ferry. At least three midget submarines were destroyed by Harbour defence vessels. The Sydney Harbour raid was the precursor of a submarine campaign against shipping off the east coast of Australia, and during June several vessels were attacked, one being torpedoed and sunk. Although some of these submarines were destroyed by Allied aircraft, two more attacks were recorded in August, and between January and May, , eight freighters and the hospital ship Centaur were torpedoed of the east coast.
No further attacks were experienced until December, , when early in the month an Allied merchant ship was shelled by an enemy submarine in Bass Strait, and early on Christmas morning an Allied merchant ship was sunk by a torpedo from an enemy submarine between Sydney and Melbourne.

When, owing to the Japanese submarine menace, the convoy system was instituted around the Australian coast in June, , Australian escort vessels were employed to protect the convoys. As the Allied forces moved northward to New Guinea and along the northern New Guinea coast, the convoys were extended, and, by the end of the war, Australian escort vessels had afforded anti-submarine protection to vast numbers of Allied troops and quantities of Allied war materials to places as far afield as Morotai, Borneo and the Philippines.
This was that the majority of the ships were commanded by R. Later, in May , Captain J. Collins, C. Squadron, with the rank of Commodore First Class. This was the first time in its history that the squadron had come under the command of an officer of the R. At the outbreak of war, the strength of the R.
This figure was doubled overnight as Reserve personnel were mobilized. Some of the Reservists went into shore establishments on base staffs, Naval Control and the examination service; others were drafted immediately to sea, a large number sailing as gunners in defensively equipped merchant ships. There was never a shortage of volunteers, and recruiting progressed steadily.
