CENTENARY OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR, 1914 - 1918

The Emden and HMAS Sydney - an Australian perspective by Mike Carlton

"On the morning of October 4, 1913, Sydney Harbour was lined with thousands of Australians eager to catch their first glimpse of the Royal Australian Navy.As the battlecruiser HMAS Australia, cruisers Melbourne, Sydney and Encounter, and destroyers Warrego, Parramatta and Yarra sailed into the Harbour for the first time, it marked a key moment in Australian defence history.The Royal Australian Navy, long years in the making, had arrived to make its mark."

Mike Carlton, journalist and historian, gives an Australian perspective on the battle which took place on November 9, 1914 in his book "First Victory 1914" published by Random House -

And at last month's International Fleet Review in Sydney Harbour, HMAS Sydney lV took a major role in the Naval centenary commemorations - the differences between the 1913 vessel and its current namesake are examined by Lincoln Archer and Daniel Franklin -
