On the 19 November 1941 HMAS Sydney II sank.

On board were 645 Australian sailors. None survived. The location of the wreck was a mystery.

This is a story of the battle that sank the Sydney, of World War II, and of wartime tricks. It is the story of the clues that were pieced together to lead to the discovery of the watery grave of the young Australians.

Author and educator Mike Lefroy will talk about the research that went into the writing of HMAS Sydney – the mystery of Australia’s greatest naval Disaster, and of the surprising stories about the tragedy that continue to surface.
