USS Chicago made a port visit to Sydney, Australia, 28 years ago, during the Vietnam War. It appears that, after an altercation at a waterfront amusement park, a petty officer from that ship was murdered; at the same time a seaman disappeared from the Royal Australian Navy. Recently, however, local authorities apprehended a man believed to be the missing seaman; they book him for the old murder. At Brumby's request Harm and Bud fly to Sydney because the prisoner asks to speak with a JAG officer of the US Navy; the accused tells Harm that he is the US sailor previously believed to be dead. Harm has trouble while driving in left-hand traffic. Mac escorts back to Sydney the body, long buried in the US, of the one believed to be the US sailor. The Australian judicial system takes jurisdiction. While in Sydney, Mac behaves as the Romans do. [To be continued.] Written by DocRushing

Did You Know?


As Harm is driving away from the airport he is driving on the left side of the road as required by the road rules in Australia. When they come to what is known in America as a 'traffic circle,' Brumby refers to it as a 'circle,' (presumably expecting Harm to know that term). In Australia, they are called 'roundabouts' and are to be driven around in an anti-clockwise direction. See more »


Brumby tells Harm and Bud that a banana bender is a nickname for someone who grows bananas but it isn't. It is a nickname for people from the state of Queensland, who supposedly spend their time putting a curve into bananas, hence 'banana benders.' See more »
