    Having been involved in the project personally, it was great to see it has not been foregotten. I helped in the construction of the lasers and the importation of the equipment used for recording the returned signal from the sparker unit, as well as the transducers that were subsequently used. I was working for Laser Electronics Pty Ltd, and I am Patricia Margaret Urquhart (Smith and then Mrs Walden)
