Harry was not on the ‘Costa Rica’ vessel that was sunk during the evacuation from Greece. In his memoir he says that en route to the port he became separated from his unit and was instead evacuated from mainland Greece to Crete on the “HMAS Perth”.

More info about the sinking of the Costa Rica.

The graphic novel that Adrian Threlfall co-wrote with Hugh Dolan, is Reg Saunders, An Indigenous War Hero.  Adrian is also the author of Jungle Warriors.
