Attack on Sydney Harbour

Remembering Sydney under attack | Australian War Memorial

Download the talk - min 2. Sixty years ago today, almost to the hour, three Type A midget submarines pulled away from their large I-class "mother" submarines about 15 kilometres east of Sydney — their mission to enter Sydney Harbour and sink Allied shipping there. The first of the two-men submarines, commanded by Lt Chuma Kenshi, entered the harbour at 8 pm. Although only the central section of an anti-torpedo boom net stretching from Georges Head to Green Point had been finished, Chuma's craft became entangled in it. It was detected by an alert harbour worker at pm and located by harbour defence craft an hour later. Before it could be attacked, the crew, who had made repeated but unsuccessful attempts to break free, destroyed themselves and their craft by detonating its kilogram scuttling charge. Meanwhile, the second submarine, commanded by Lt Ban Katsuhisa, had slipped past the boom net and made its way to a position off Potts Point.
