BENEATH SOUTHERN SEAS - The Silent Service
'Beneath Southern Seas - celebrating the Australian submariner'. This was a 272 page hard back coffee table book, published by UWA Press in 2005, that my company Eye in the Sky produced. We spent 18 months with the Submarine Force Element Group documenting the world of our submarines. All chapters were interview based including; The Captain, The XO, Navigator, Warfare Officer, The COB, ASC, Thales, Commodore, Design & Construction etc. Archival pages covered our heritage as one of the world's oldest submarine services. Grateful thanks to Commodore Brett Dowsing, LT Graham 'Spin' Spencer, Captain Steve Hussey and all crew and staff at Submarine HQ, HMAS Stirling.
