The Last Gentlemen of War


Two ships, two nations, two extraordinary stories.

The Last Gentlemen of War recreates the events of an extraordinary battle in 1914. The first HMAS Sydney met the German light cruiser SMS Emden at the Cocos Islands. It was a decisive victory for the Royal Australian Navy in its first-ever wartime engagement, but SMS Emden also deserved her fame. This compelling exhibition speaks of the tributes that flowed to both the victor and the vanquished.

 

Exhibition is running 7 November 2014 – 26 April 2015 | 9.30am – 5pm daily | Free

Western Australian Maritime Museum, Fremantle
