This story of the men of 42 Australian Landing Craft Company is a stirring and fitting tribute to the magnificent soldiers who risked and often gave their lives in Operation Porton in 1945. In the true tradition of the ANZACs these are stories of ordinary men who did extraordinary things. Operating in the very real danger of battle, the men of 42 ALC faced unpredictable seas and sustained enemy fire to land, support and then evacuate the soldiers of a company of 31/51 Bn. These stories are told with a frankness and affection in aw way that only a soldier can. 'Sailors in Slouch Hats' is a superb collection of personal experiences of mateship, ingenuity, larrikinism and bravery. We are fortunate to have this record of some of our heroes.
