Anzac Hero: Sister Savage and the Centaur Sinking — Part One


On 14 May 1943, the Australian Hospital Ship Centaur was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine off the coast of Queensland, with the loss of 268 people. Nursing sister Lieutenant Ellen Savage was one of the survivors and was hailed a hero for her bravery. While Centaur is well remembered, this podcast focuses on Nell Savage and her life of service before, during and after WWII. Part two will be released tomorrow.
