The search for the Centaur

By JOL Admin | 8 September 2008

There is recent renewed interest in locating the final resting place of the Australian Hospital Ship Centaur which was attacked and sunk by the Japanese in May 1943, in waters to the east of Brisbane.

The enduring mystery of the Centaur's location will hopefully be solved by a proposed search, similar to the recent successful search for the Sydney.

The John Oxley Library holds a range of material and information relating to the Centaur, including printed material, photographs and ephemeral material such as pamphlets and other commemorative material.
