Event description

Description

Thursday 12 October, 2-4pm

Late on the night of Saturday 28 February 1942 and into the early hours of Sunday 1 March 1942, the cruisers HMAS Perth and USS Houston fought for their lives in the Dutch East Indies.

Against overwhelming odds – outnumbered and outgunned by a large advancing Japanese force – they fought bravely and defiantly but lost the battle. Both ships sank that dreadful night in the Battle of Sunda Strait. Join Lindsey Shaw as she unfolds this historic account.

Lindsey Shaw is one of ANMM's Honorary Research Associates, having worked at the museum for 27 years from its inception in 1986. She was Senior Curator responsible for the museum's naval collections and most recently curated the exhibition, Guardians of Sunda Strait.
