memento may 2001 8 NAA: M3613, 13 Former Prime Minister Sir Joseph Cook and his wife, Dame Mary, enjoy an intimate moment on a rainy Southampton day. The Cooks were attending the 1926 christening and launch of the first Australian submarine-napier amphibian flying boat, the 'Seagull', one of six ordered by Australia from the Southampton Submarine Aviation Works. Sir Joseph, who was High Commissioner for Australia in London from 1921 to 1927, was a passenger on the flying boat's inaugural flight. This photograph is just one of the many fascinating items in our collection of Prime Ministers' papers. Through our Prime Ministers' Papers Project, we aim to make the personal papers of former Prime Ministers more visible and accessible by improving their documentation, creating a Prime Ministers website and producing a series of research guides.
