Curtain Informed of war before Pearl Harbour

What a great show, research by Bob Wurth has uncovered Curtains relationship with the Japanese ambassador to Australia and how he tipped the PM off a week before Pearl Harbour. Curtain's standing up to Churchill must go down as one of those great moments in Australian's wartime history. For people like Dr Stanley from the AWM to denegrate Curtain and play down the threat of Japanese invasion is historically incorrect. Curtain a flawed but great man. Cheers Rod
