Do you know which US Naval vessels might have been in port with officers on shore leave during Sept-Nov 1942 in either Sydney or Brisbane ports?
I have been looking on the web for this information, but can't seem to track it down. Did however come across an article where you found information for an American chap looking up family history and hoped you might be able to help.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

All of the above is probably of little assistance to y ou, sorry I could not do more.
