NES report of the shelling of Sydney

This page is attached to the log book entry for 8 June 1942 from the NES' Control Centre. It details the damage caused by the shells of the Japanese submarine I-24. While the submarine fired 10 shells, the NES have only recorded eight incidents. The military authorities determined that only two shells exploded, while this list implies that most did.
