Meeting with Robert Hadler, author of Dark Secrets
10 March 2021 | 7.30pm
Alma’s Activities Centre Clarence | 17 Alma Street, Bellerive
In his latest book, Dark Secrets, Robert deals with the shocking murder of John Joseph Riley of Bellerive, a 19 year old sailor on HMAS Australia, flagship of the Royal Australian Navy in the Coral Sea in March 1942.
He covers the military investigation and the court martial where two sailors were found guilty and sentenced to death. The ensuing legal and political ramifications resulted in the signing of the Statute of Westminster by King George VI.
He also describes the efforts of the convicted men’s families to have their sentences commuted and the burden of grief borne ever since by the Riley family.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions it is imperative reservations are made.
