Emden v. Sydney: Special presentation

Something I wrote for the office.

NARRATIVE: 'Sink the Emden: Australia's titanic first victory at sea'

Didn't get enough time to integrate this newly digitised 1920s newsreel covering the famous action:

The NFSA is marking the centenary of Australia's first victory at sea, when the HMAS Sydney defeated the SMS Emden on 9 November 1914, with the publication of the 1931 silent film Sea Raider. The first film about this battle, Unsere Emden, was made in Germany in 1926.
