Remembering HMAS Kuttabul :: About the midget submarines

Each issue we find that we have more and more to fit into our magazine and Steven Carruthers article on the 1942 attack on Sydney Harbour was no different. Now we have a way of showing you so much more.

Our iPad version allows us to include galleries of images, audio and video that simply can't go into our print edition at the newsagents.

As part of our article to commemorate the 1942 attack and those brave men lost in the sinking of the HMAS Kuttabul and the Japanese midget submarines, the talented people at Headland Creative have produced superb animations that take you back to those terrible days 70 years ago and show us something of the Japanese perspective.

The lunchtime re-enactment cruise is an endorsed fundraising event in support of Legacy. Organisers wish to bring into the public eye the great work performed by Legacy year round, for the widows and orphans of our deceased servicemen and women. The Kuttabul Commemoration Project’s Sydney Harbour Cruise is a major event on the 70th anniversary calendar in remembering the events of 1942.

Tickets for this solemn and memorable event are available through Gary Traynor. Tickets are $80 and numbers are limited. Gary is the founder of a not-for-profit website called Medals Gone Missing.
