The Chairman of the Finding Sydney Foundation (FSF), Ted Graham AM, said today that the Foundation is proud and pleased to congratulate the Australian and Queensland Governments, Search Director David Mearns and all those involved in today's discovery of the wreck of AHS Centaur.
Ted Graham said “We are pleased because we know from our experience in finding Sydney that the discovery will bring a measure of peace to families of those lost on AHS Centaur."
He added that "The success in finding HMAS Sydney II and HSK Kormoran in 2008 set a precedent which gave the two Governments the confidence to fund the successful search for AHS Centaur.“
The Foundation's successful search for HMAS Sydney II and HSK Kormoran resulted from its persistent work over many years beginning with its research in the early 1990s and complemented by the engagement of David Mearns as its Search Director in 2004.
