UDO SAVED MY LIFE JANUARY 30, 1945.  ASK ME FOR DETAILS ABOUT THIS GREAT FRIEND.  I REMEMBER SEEING "RAMILLES" SINKING IN HIS ELABORATE PHOTO ALBUM.

Ivan,

Please may I have the details to add to AHOY?

Regards,
Mac.

Hi, it's almost midnight in California.  First, I need to know a little, no, quite a  a little more about you and your project, before I can tell you of my relationship with Udo Heilmann.  I hope you understand. For what purpose is the information being used. Who benefits from it?  What is your attitude towards him? Who will benefit from my information?

Sincerely, Ivan. 


Ivan,

I have a large website: http://ahoy.tk-jk.net all about Naval history.

I joined the Royal Australian Naval College as a 13 year old Cadet Midshipman in January of 1936. As a 17 year old I went off to war at sea in August of 1939, and spent the next years at sea or overseas.

Sunk by the Japanese in HMAS Canberra at the Battle of Savo Island on August 9 1942, when that fight commenced I was Officer of the Watch on her bridge.

Was present in HMAS Shropshire in Tokyo Bay for the signing of the Japanese surrender on September 2 1945.

AHOY had received 123,000 visitors, and your story would benefit my readers and receive a wide distribution.

No one receives any financial gain from my web site, its all about the dissemination of Naval History to a an audience world wide.

Hoping to hear from you as convenient.

Best wishes,
Mac.
