Event description

Description

Hidden for 75 years the top-secret government documents outlining preparations for a Japanese invasion of Australia in 1942 have finally been discovered.

This is a treasure trove, a gold mine, a Christmas every day cornucopia of rich Australian history, particularly Second World War history. The detail is mind-boggling: how to sabotage water supplies; how to wreck a car; a safe walking route from Grafton to Glen Innes; how to ‘trip’ a tank with a crowbar. Read… and wonder. Peter Grose, author of A Very Rude Awakening and an An Awkward Truth.

Only a few copies of these plans were ever produced. Discover how Sue Rosen came across them unexpectedly in government archives last year.

Light refreshments provided.

Gold coin contributions welcome.
