Some of you may be aware that only one body washed ashore following the sinking of HMAS Sydney in 1941.


The man was on a single Carley float and was wearing bleached overalls. It has now been announced that efforts to name him via DNA have finally paid-off.


He has been named as Thomas Welsby Clark, aged 20. His grave in Western Australia, formerly marked as unknown, will receive a new headstone.

May his family know peace at last.
