Victorian Chapter – Monthly Meeting with Guest Speaker Mr Robert Hadler “Murder, Mutiny & Political Controversy”
Mon 28 Jun, 2021, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Glen Waverley, VIC Australia + Google Map
Robert Hadler is passionate about Australian history and controversial events that sparked military, legal and political challenges for the nation.
Robert’s presentation is based around his two books – “Dark Secrets, A true Story of Murder in HMAS Australia”, which deals with the military, legal and diplomatic fallout arising from a murder in HMAS Australia in March 1942; and his latest book “Mutineers, A True Story of Heroes and Villains”, which deals with the complex military, political and diplomatic issues behind the 1919 mutiny in HMAS Australia I and its aftermath, plus the personal and sometimes tragic human-interest story about the five young mutineers.
This promises to be a fascinating account derived from two dark moments in the history of the RAN, and their wider impact on the Navy and the Nation.
Robert has kindly agreed to sign copies of his newly published “Mutineers” book which will be available for purchase afterwards.
Members and Guests are most welcome
Robert will join us for a relaxing meal and drink in the RSL’s delightful Warramunga Room, always a pleasant prelude to our meeting
