Collection consists of a 20 page published manuscript titled "Mined off Mallacoota : A World War I Maritime Military History of East Gippsland and South Coast New South Wales : A Report prepared for the Mallacoota and District Historical Society". The research and report, written by Dr Sarah Mirams in May 2013, were funded by a grant from the Maritime Museums of Australia Project Support Scheme.
