DEDICATION


It is dedicated to the Australian Hospital Ship AHS Centaur of WWll


AHS Centaur was a hospital ship which was attacked and sunk by a Japanese submarine off the coast of Queensland, Australia, on 14 May 1943. Of the 332 medical personnel and civilian crew aboard, 268 were killed. The majority of the 332 aboard died in the attack; the 64 survivors

had to wait for 36 hours before they were rescued. The attack resulted in public outrage as it was considered to be a war crime.


Protests were made by the Australian and British governments to Japan and efforts were made to discover the people responsible so they could be tried at a war crimes tribunal. Despite this, it was not until the 1970s that identity of the attacking submarine, I-177, became public.


The reason for the attack is unknown, and the events surrounding the sinking of Centaur are controversial because it has been attested that she may have been in breach of the international conventions that should have protected her.


The single greatest loss of life resulting from a submarine attack in Australian waters occurred off Point Lookout on 14 May 1943 when the hospital ship AHS Centaur was sunk by a Japanese submarine.
