October 7 (Sun) 1945, Sydney, Australia

After steaming down the coast at slow speed last night, we duly passed thru the [Sydney Harbour] Heads, in bright sunshine, just before 0900. We crept up the harbour & secured to buoy one, a very short distance from Man-o-War Steps.

HM Ships King George V & Suffolk are at Woolloomooloo [wharf] and [HMS] Indefatigable in dry dock.
