“Stoker Darby Munro was just an inexperienced seventeen-year-old knockabout kid when he went to war, but he turned out to be an extraordinary survivor.  The sinking of the Perth was only the beginning of his war.  Stoker suffered through years of harsh imprisonment in Java and the infamous Changi prison camp, as well as the horrors of the Thai-Burma Railway.  Then, just as conditions improved, he was shipped off to Japan and another disaster.
Stoker Munro Survivor is a simple but moving account of a young sailor’s war, as told to his close friend, David Spiteri.  Stoker’s voice – clear, distinctive, laidback and larrikin with an ability to find the humour in just about any situation – epitomises everything that is great about the ANZAC spirit: courage, resilience, and an overwhelming determination to never give up.”
