NAVAL SHOWCASE 1957
Recorded EMI Studios Sydney 1957.
Original Album from Ed Thring.
Bandsmen from HMAS Sydney, HMAS Melbourne, Eastern Australia Area, Flinders Naval Depot and School of Music made this record possible in 1957 at the Castlereagh St studios of EMI. There is no band listing on this album or acknowledgement of sound or studio engineers. The cover notes have no author.
This Album has Mp3 recordings.

They then go onto say,
Fortunately for our record collection, there were no romantic stampedes and the recording sessions were carried out with traditional Senior Service decorum.
