Hi Brian,

I'd be most interested to hear when your second edition comes out. Please advise, can I buy direct from you? My Aunt, Margaret Garrett, later Bennetton, was one of the few Nurse survivors of the Khedive sinking. she would very seldom talk of it, or purchase anything Japanese, but she stated she just happened to be on deck at the time. Even so, the ship heeled so fast that she suffered a broken nose from the passenger rail, and somehow managed to last the turmoil and depth charges in the water. I reckon she must have been right alongside P Buster Crabb, judging by his 1977 account of the events. I wd love to get hold of the stamp re the 40th Anniversary of the action, too. Phil, Melbourne, Australia
