A parting shot: shelling of Australia by Japanese submarines 1942
Terry Jones and Steven Carruthers
In the early morning of 8 June 1942, residents of Sydney and Newcastle were woken abruptly by gunfire blasts from Japanese submarine raiders lurking off the coast. Although casualties and damage were slight, the incident fuelled the real fear of an impending Japanese invasion. Terry Jones and Steven Carruthers reconstruct events that occurred in both cities, including the search for, recovery and disposal of unexploded shells.
