About

Recommended for adult audiences.

Secret and Special explores the untold story of Z Special Unit and Operations, the precursor to the elite SAS, and the extraordinary feats they undertook in the Pacific during the Second World War.

The Z Special Unit was established as a secret military reconnaissance and sabotage unit after the declaration of war on Japan. The unit carried out a total of 81 covert operations in the South West Pacific theatre, with parties inserted by parachute or submarine to provide intelligence and conduct guerrilla warfare. The best known of these missions were Operation Jaywick and Operation Rimau.

With access to not-previously-shared interviews with each of the soldiers who returned from these Z Special missions, Davies sheds a bright light on what is an incredibly under-told part of Australian activity during the Second World War.

We will send you out a Zoom Link prior to the event for you to use to login.
