In November 1941 HMAS Sydney, the pride of Australia's wartime
fleet, and its crew of 645 disappeared without a trace off the
Western Australian coast. All that was known was Sydney had come
under fire from the German raider HSK Kormoran, which also sank.
After numerous unsuccessful searches from the mid 1970s onwards,
the Finding Sydney Foundation was set up and in March 2008 one of
Australia's greatest maritime mysteries was solved when both wrecks
were finally discovered. The Search for HMAS Sydney pieces together
the incredible story of Sydney, its crew and the families left
behind. It details the innovative and powerful research procedures
implemented by the Foundation to locate the wrecks of Sydney and
Kormoran, their discovery and the detailed forensic analyses and
commemorations that followed.
