Submarine relic sale

Date: 1/8/2008

A World War II relic from Japan’s midget submarine raid in Sydney Harbour is expected to fetch tens of thousands of dollars at auction. The steering wheel from one of three Japanese subs which made the daring raid on 31 May 1942, will go under the hammer at a Sydney auction house. The spokesman for the auction house said that they would not be surprised if the steering wheel reaches A$100,000 (NZ$126.000).
