Wreck of HMAS Sydney found

A very interesting news item this morning.

THE wreckage of HMAS Sydney, sunk off the West Australian coast during World War II, has been found, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd announced today.

The ship’s entire crew of 645 went down with the ship in the Indian Ocean. Its location has been a mystery for 66 years. It was one of many Australian naval losses during WWII.

The wreckage of a German ship – the merchant raider Kormoran – believed to have sunk the Sydney was found at the weekend in waters about 800km north of Perth.
