The Commonwealth Marine Salvage Board, also known as The Australian Salvage Board, was established in March 1942. It began restoring 86 vessels, 83 of which were fully salvaged and returned to service. The Board was abolished in January 1946, when the Australian Shipping Board was established, with marine salvage being amongst its functions.
