    Description

    HMS Louis was wrecked at Suvla Bay on 31 October 1915 during the Gallipoli campaign. Petty Officer Alfred Siggs from Leederville was stationed at Suvla Bay, to the north of Anzac Cove, with the Royal Australian Navy Bridging Train (RANBT). Siggs was one of the RANBT members who attempted to salvage the ship, which had been much damaged by Turkish artillery. Siggs later transferred to the Australian Imperial Force with the rank of Lance Corporal. He was killed in action at Pozieres, France on 29 July 1916, aged just 20.

    The Royal Australian Navy Bridging Train was a unique unit of the Royal Australian Navy.  It was active only during World War One where it served in the Gallipoli and the Sinai and Palestine campaigns. The Train was formed in February 1915 and stood down in May 1917. Throughout its existence, it was composed of RAN Reservists under the command of Lieutenant Commander Leighton Bracegirdle.
