|The Crew of HMAS Perth|
|The HMAS Perth was sunk by the Imperial Japanese Navy on March 1st, 1942 in the Sunda Strait, between Sumatra and Java.|
The scenarios in "Four Against Japan" by Len Heinz in my scenarios links cover the actions of HMAS Perth as part of the ill fated ABDA command and their battles in the Java Sea.
An excellent site giving more information about the ship and showing pictures of the wreck can be found here
A history of the ship and details of her loss can be found here
