Captain John Dikkenberg - Friday's at the Alfreds Luncheon

Come and join us for ‘Fridays at the Alfreds’ with our first event for 2021.

John Dikkenberg has been at sea or in the maritime industry for his entire working life. He joined the Royal Australian Navy in 1966 as a cadet and after graduating, served in destroyers and the troop transport HMAS Sydney, then ferrying soldiers to the Vietnam War. He joined the submarine service in 1972

John’s book, In Whom We Trust deals with sea disasters from the perspective of the ships’ masters and captains, bringing a rare insight into the characters of the captains and what led these men to make the decisions that destroyed their ships.
