Good shots of Leander, had not seen them before, thanks for posting Martin.
Pity the port shot is incomplete, notice the NZ developed SW and SWG RDF arrays.

Hi all. Aiming to build HMAS Perth in Med in May 1941 (circa crete shenanigans) and keen for input regards AA fit out (tried to find the steel navy discussion re this but couldnt and the perthone website no longer working). The AWM site has several pics but hard to fully piece it together

Q1: I believe quad pom pom had replaced catapult but were the 2 ex-italian bredas still in place on the circumference of this area or where did they go?
Q2: if the breda's were in place were they offset at 1.30 oclock and 730 oclock (1200 being forrard).
Q3: AA on quarterdeck during this period: Various suggestions summarised as
a) Nil except light single machine guns eg lewis
b) oerlikon in gun tub midline
c) offset quad vickers (certainly present present after refit and new paintjob in '42)

Might try and recreate the vaulting horses in the waist with .303 rifles for novelty :)

cheers in advance

dan

Dan, If you wait until early next year NHSA (Naval Historical Society of Australia) will be re-releasing HMAS Perth in Ebook, it will include new detailed weapons reports, images and colour profiles.
1) The Mk VII quad replaced the Breda`s fitted on the catapult barbette, fitted in early May 41, the Breda`s were moved to the gundeck either side of the S.L. block, NO actual catapult was ever fitted until Sept/Nov 41 refit.
3) No AA guns on Qtrdeck, 2 quad 0.5 Mk II* fitted Sept/Nov 41. Perth was never fitted with any oerlikons for her entire service. The image you may refer to with Mk I oerlikon (no shield) in octagonal bin on qtrdeck is York.

Fantastic info thanks Brett and look forwards to ordering the book! Just at the stage of collating resources and deciding tine period to model her in.
Thanks again for the rapid response!
Cheers
