The Corvette Veterans Club was first formed in April 1979, by Bob McGavin, who placed an enquiry in the Royal Navy Tribune, for any men who worked during, and on the boat of the HMAS Whyalla Corvette in Australia to contact him. To Bob's surprise, there were numerous responses to his enquiry. Today the Corvette Veterans Club has over 500 members in Australia, and another 30 located across the world.
