G'day All,

Come along on at 8 pm on Thursday, 19th May 2011 to the Victorian Sub-Aqua Group (VSAG - meeting and hear Dr Stuart Cannon present HMAS Sydney - the Wreck, the story and the Conspiracy.

HMAS Sydney was lost with all hands during the second world war as a result of a confrontation with the HSK Kormoran. It is considered Australia's worst wartime maritime disaster. Many of the German crew survived to tell the story and as a result of this various conspiracy theories started. This presentation will tell the story of HMAS Sydney, the relocation of the wreck sites and describe how the video footage and photographs were analysed together with modern computer tools to explain the events of the Sydney was lost. The presentation will include examples of the video, photographs, historical documents and well as graphical representations of the event. Finally some of the conspiracy theories will be put to bed.

This is the presentation Stuart gave at the OZTech Dive Conference in March this year.

For a fun and informative evening:

8 pm Thursday, 19th May 2011

The Maori Chief Hotel
117 Moray Street, corner of Moray and York Streets
South Melbourne VIC 3205 (Melway 1D L11)

You are welcome to arrive at 7 pm and have dinner with VSAG members before the VSAG meeting begins at 8 pm.
