HMAS Sydney

Whenever I receive a postcard of a city or of a monument, I search the Internet for information and history. As Debbie from Australia, who sent it to me, wrote, this memorial has a very sad story.

HMAS Sydney was a ship of the Royal Australian Navy. During the World War II it came across a German ship named Kormoran. After a long battle, HMAS Sydney was sank taking with her 645 sailors.
