Thanks to our ‘Grave Tales: Sydney’ paperback buyers, we’re very proud to donate $150 to the Kuttabul Commemoration Project.

Gary Traynor and his volunteers are passionate about honouring the memory of Kenneth Killeen (featured in our book) and the other 20 courageous men who lost their lives that night of 31 May 1942 on the Kuttabul.

It is a true story of three Japanese midget submarines; an armada of Allied warships, their target; Kenneth, and the sailors who perished the night WWII came to Sydney.
