HMAS Sydney & David Mearns book launch

Post by West-Front » Mon Aug 17, 2009 1:35 am

My father and I attended a local book signing and lunch with David Mearns. He and his team successfully found the wrecks of the HMAS Sydney and the German raider Kormoran off the coast of Western Australia in 2008.

A very poignant moment was when an elderley woman who had a relative lost on the HMAS Sydney showed us a period print (obviously well loved and valued)

I can highly recommend the book as its well produced and illustrated and getting a copy signed was a fantastic opportunity. Here are some photos and links associated with the HMAS Sydney
