Message Vic Duncan was my metal work teacher at Narwee boys high school and later friend as we both trained at Illawarra Catholic club in Hurstville. Undertaking 10k marathon runs twice a week in the early 70's.Watching the progam on channel 9 In there footsteps rekindled fond memories of Vic. The harsh realities of war were not ever mentioned then, although I knew he was a POW in the war. A great bloke and even greater australian. God bless you Vic.

Message Two of my cousins were on board the Perth when it was sunk in Sunda Strait
Claude Maslen died 1 March 1942
Gordon Dvorak died 12 Sep 1944
Claude died soon after the ship sank, either in the water or perhaps he made it to shore.
Gordon's date of death indicates that he was a POW and perhaps died on the Burma railway construction.
I wonder where I can find a few more details about their deaths.

Message My Uncle Alec Charles Murphy was an AB on Perth I when it was sunk in sunda strait, sadly he passed away just before xmas but will be remembered by all of us.
I have just finished reading Mike Carltons book on the Perth, as Alec never talked much about his time in the navy this book gave me some insight into what actually happened both during the battle and after as a pow.
If there are any other members of the Perth I crew that remember serving with Alec I would be very happy for them to drop me a line
