Comments: The fascinating story of Australia’s awareness of its vulnerability from when the colony entertained the arrival of foreign ships and when strange ships were perceived as a threat; to 1911 and the formation of the Royal Australian Navy. Evans also looks at the Royal Australian Navy in wartime and during peace, the increasing role of women and the difference of sailors of 75 years ago.
From the library of the late Brigadier Bryant AM with his signature on the front end paper.
