I am looking for the records of interview of crew members of HMAS Voyager. I fluked the search for Volume 2 which included my interview (A1256, ITEM 3A, Volume 2) beginning at page 698, but have not been able to retrieve the previous lot of interviews (?maybe Item 2A or Volume 1) covering names A-G.

Can anyone give me a link to get at these pages please?

I am also interested in reading the statements by the crew of rescue boat Air Chief, which I presume would be with the Jervis Bay and Creswell interview papers. I vaguely recall that one of the crew published his memory of that night. but so far have not been able to turn it up. Can anyone help here too.

regards George
