Three male soldiers standing on top of a submarine with a small crowd of boys and girls looking on.

Schoolchildren and service personnel inspect the mid-section of a Japanese midget submarine on display in the Exhibition Gardens in Melbourne in late 1942. The submarine had taken part in the unsuccessful attack on Sydney Harbour earlier in the year, and the wreck was taken on a tour of south-eastern Australia to raise money for the Royal Australian Navy Relief Fund and the King George Fund for Merchant Sailors.
