VSAG 15-Nov-07 Meeting - Mac Gregory
Group Meetings Hi All,

Over time the Victorian Sub-Aqua Group (VSAG),, has had some excellent guest presenters. At the November monthly meeting on Thursday, 15th November, we have an extraordinary guest presenter!

Victorian Sub-Aqua Group Presents:
MAC GREGORY on Naval, Maritime and Australian History

Mac Gregory joined the Royal Australian Naval College as a 13 year old in 1936.

Mac was sent to sea in 1939 as war was impending. He spent the total war at sea or in the UK doing his Sub Lieutenant's Course.

Mac served in the 8 inch cruisers, "Australia", "Canberra" and "Shropshire".

Mac was Officer of Watch on the "Canberra” when the Battle of Savo Island commenced at 0143 on 9th August 1942. Was it the Japanese who sank the "Canberra" during that intense battle?

Mac was on the "Shropshire" for the Japanese surrender at Tokyo Bay on 2nd September 1945.

Mac has exciting stories about the ships, submarines and historic war events that are fascinating to say the least.

Mac's account of the Japanese Mini Submarines attack on Sydney Harbour is riveting!!!

Mac is an excellent presenter, reading from well prepared, very detailed script and pictures.

If you think you've read or heard all the true accounts of some famous war events, Mac Gregory may have more for you!!!

For a very special evening with a very special naval historian, sailor and Australian war veteran:

I've just been putting together a PowerPoint presentation of the photos Mac Gregory has to accompany his presentation.

All I can say is that, if you have any interest in Australian naval history, the sinking of the original HMAS Canberra in WW2, naval torpedo and mine warfare, Japanese submarines and warships, navy traditions, the attack on Sydney harbour by Japanese midget submarines, wreck diving, hard hat diving, Australian ships sunk in WW2 and much, much more, then you don't want to miss Mac's presentation at the VSAG meeting this coming Thursday night.

Best Regards, Lloyd Borrett.
