17 марта 2008 года ВМС Австралии провели пресс-конференцию, на которой рассказали о результатах своих поисковых работ и обнаружении корабля (HMAS Sydney), который затонул после боя с немецким судном (raider Kormoran) во время второй мировой.

A handout photo taken March 17, 2008 shows The Chief of Navy, Vice Admiral Russ Shalders (2/R) briefing the media with Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd (2/L), the Chief of the Defence Force Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston (L), Mr Ted Graham Chairman of The Finding Sydney Foundation (C) and The Hon Warren Snowdon MP Minister for Defence Science and Personnel (R) at the announcement that the Australian cruiser HMAS Sydney, sunk in a World War II naval battle more than 66 years ago, was found off the coast of Western Australia. The discovery of the apparently intact hull of the HMAS Sydney, sunk in a bloody battle with the German raider Kormoran in which all 645 men on the Sydney lost their lives, puts an end to an enduring seven-decade war mystery.
