    My question has to do with a memorial over there. During WW2, my uncle was on a US navy destroyer that was sunk by the Japanese near there and a memorial was erected. His ship was the USS Peary and it went down 19 Feb, 1942. this is the website.

    http://www.skp.com.au/memorials/pages/80019.htm

    What I was wondering, if there is anyway someone there could get some more pictures and email them to me.

    My uncle is Paul Sweeney and any information and pictures of the memorial would be greatly appreciated.
