Postscript to Voyager - The Melbourne Voyager Collision . Hickling. Postscript to Voyager - The Melbourne Voyager Collision . Hickling.

The detailed account of the HMAS Melbourne–Voyager collision.
The Melbourne–Voyager collision was a collision between two warships of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN); the aircraft carrier HMAS Melbourne (R21) and the destroyer HMAS Voyager (D04). On the evening of 10 February 1964, the two ships were performing manoeuvres off Jervis Bay, when Voyager sailed under Melbourne's bow. She was cut in two and sunk, and 82 of her crew killed.
Two Royal Commissions were held to investigate the incident. The first studied the circumstances of the collision, while the second focused on claims by a former Voyager senior officer that the destroyer's captain was unfit for command. It is the only time in Australian history that two Royal Commissions have been held for a single incident.

G Cond, Foxing to fly, bumped corners
As fantastic and incredible as a tale out of the Arabian Nights is the life of Sir Basil Zaharoff, The Armaments King. Shrouded in legend, hidden behind the confused and equivocal statements of men who knew him, it is no wonder that Sir Basil has been called the "mystery-man" of Europe...here, in short, is a book that is absorbing and startling as a piece of biographical research, as a human document, and as a revelation of certain significant aspects of contemporary history...

The Drama of the Scharnhorst. Busch. The Drama of the Scharnhorst. Busch.

1956 1st edn.
'"Scharnhorst" sunk by British naval forces 60 sea miles NW of North Cape, 26th December, 1943 at 19 hours 45'. So ran the radio announcement that told the world of the end of the German battleship "Scharnhorst". The implications of this short message, in terms of human experience, remained unknown until the end of the war when the story was told by the few German survivors and the officers and men of the British Navy. While the epic of the final battle forms the core of his narrative, Fritz-Otto Busch also depicts life aboard the 32,000-ton warship and records her short, eventful history from her launching in 1939 to her fateful demise. He relates how "Scharnhorst" sank the British aircraft carrier "Glorious" in 1940, menaced Allied shipping in the Atlantic throughout 1941, and made her impudent, flaunting dash up the channel to the safety of the Norwegian fjords in 1942. Considered by her crew to be a "lucky ship", her luck ran out in 1943 when she found herself outnumbered in Arctic waters by superior Allied naval forces. The British ships were equipped with Radar, the "Scharnhorst" was not - a fatal disadvantage that was to prove decisive.

The Significance of Ribbon Colours on Medals Worn Since 1815 by Australians. Grebert. The Significance of Ribbon Colours on Medals Worn Since 1815 by Australians. Grebert.

Many books have been written describing the various orders, decorations and medals worn by Australians.
However, this is the first publication which documents the significance of the colours chosen in the design of the ribbon supporting the medal. Originally the 'Naval Riband of England', a white ribbon with navy blue edges or the 'Military Riband of England', a crimson ribbon with dark blue edgeswas used on all campaign medals.
With the introduction of ribbon bars, multi coloured ribbons were introduced to differentiate one medal from another. With the assistance of this book, the reader will not only be able to identify medals worn by Australians, they will also develop a greater understanding of the significance of the colours of the supporting ribbons.
This book covers British Orders, Decorations and Medals awarded to Australians, the Australian Honours system, United Nations and NATO Medals awarded to Australians, Foreign Orders, Decorations and Medals awarded to Australians, Association and other Unofficial Medals worn by Australians, and the Order of Wearing Australian Honours and Awards.
A highly desirable reference book.

Goins' Encyclopedia Of Cutlery Markings. Goins Goins' Encyclopedia Of Cutlery Markings. Goins

Secondhand, VG Cond, mylar covered with some mylar lifting on the rear cover.

Goins' Encyclopedia, is one of the most talked about books in recent memory. Since the first Encyclopedia became required reading for all cutlery collectors 12 years ago, John and Charlotte Goins have been deluged with ever more questions, queries, and bits of information on old firms and markings. Increasingly, collectors have wondered if and when there might be an update to that knife collector's "bible." Friends, the answer is yes, and that day is finally here. For those of you unfamiliar with the "Goins Book," Goins' Encyclopedia contains summaries of the known history behind practically every marking found on antique cutlery. There are literally thousands of cutlery manufacturers, importers, dealers, hardware firms, barber supply companies, and the like included in its scope. When it comes to historical information on the brands of old knives, razors, or anything else that goes 'cut,' Goins' Encyclopedia is far and away the best single resource.
