My dad on HMAS Sydney 1 in 1926

Dad got into trouble on the old Sydney for reading a newspaper on duty!

Dad was part of the skeleton crew left on the old Sydney while she was waiting to be paid off & scrapped and being a farm boy he didn't think there was much point polishing the guns so he read the Sydney Sun instead. When he was carpeted his CO didn't punish him; just told him he wasn't paid to think!
