Cruiser, The Life and Loss of HMAS Perth and her Crew
David Armstrong also has told me about HMAS Perth (Hec Waller) and Sunda Strait - what a story!
There is a monster of a book recently released in Australia. It is: Carlton Mike. "Cruiser, The Life and Loss of HMAS Perth and her Crew" Random House Pty Ltd. North Sydney, 2010.
I have no doubt it is the definitive book about Perth.
I had some little input via my AHOY website, which is duly acknowledged.
Hec Waller was in charge of the Royal Australian Naval college when I joined it in 1936, so I knew him well.
Highly recommended if you can turn up a copy.
