Brennan Keats Presentation on Navy Book Quiet Waters

You are invited to meet author Brennan Keats when he makes a special presentation about his book Quiet Waters. It follows the life of Russell Keats, a sensitive 20 year old supply assistant on board HMAS Canberra as related from his personal letters to his parents before the Battle of Savo Sound. It also includes a CD of songs from World War II. The book provides an account of shipboard life in prominent naval units in WWII and the experiences of a young man with a strong sense of duty. The book also gives a detailed account of the Japanese attack on Sydney Harbour during May and June of 1942. It includes many photos from the Australian War Memorial and others in private collections.
