Memories of S-11 Kelton

Committee Member David Lloyd recently interviewed Eddy Knox, Australian Army veteran of 19 AUST L OF C AREA SIGS. Ed remembers being transported by Small Ships Section with five other members of his unit from Madang to Lae on the deck of S-11 Kelton. The Kelton was a 51’ wooden trawler; Ed recalls being told to meet the S-11 at midnight in rough weather, sailing to Finschaffen for refuelling on the small, wooden, green boat; then onto Lae to reunite with his unit. Ed also recalls the black cat with six kittens roaming the deck of the Kelton.
