Advisory War Council Minutes, 18 March 1942

Advisory War Council Minutes, 18 March 1942

Questions have been raised about whether an official court of inquiry was held into the Sydney's loss. Minute 842 on page four contains the only reference to such an inquiry. No other records, discussions or proceedings have ever been located. A similar reference is found in the notes of the secretary, Frederick Shedden.
