Queensland Maritime Museum says
The Tide at the Ebb “The Battle of the Coral Sea” -
presented by Board Member, Membership and Social Secretary, Volunteer and Member Mike Sobyra in the Queensland Maritime Museum Meeting Room.

Join Mike for a description of the battle that stemmed the tide at sea to augment the heroism of the Aussies on the Kokoda Trail. This may not have been the turning of the tide, but strategically it was the first time the Japanese plans of conquest were stopped at sea. The Australian and American Navy were instrumental in forcing the withdrawal of the invasion fleet from Port Moresby. It was also the first battle between fleets that was conducted by aircraft rather than ship to ship action.

Light refreshments served at the conclusion. Members and Volunteers by gold coin donation, guests $5.
