HMAS Nizam steaming to Fremantle from Melbourne during World War II tragically lost 10 men overboard just 11 nautical miles off Cape Leeuwin Light.

A moonless night, 2215 hours on 11 February 1945, lights out, compasses suspect, loss of engines for a time, confusion and panic as the destroyer heeled more than 65 degrees, hesitated and then slowly returned back to the vertical.

A true story which should
appeal to readers of nautical
history and geography
