Day in the working life of a historian: Jane Lydon


Anonymous, [Navy photographs, 8 October 2001], Project SafeCom, Jack H Smit. This photograph was taken by navy personnel after refugees were rescued from the sinking SIEV4 in 2001, and shows the happy and relieved familes aboard the HMS Adelaide. By contrast with the so-called ‘children overboard’ images, the public did not get to see these until two years later when they were anonymously donated to Project SafeCom.
