longer. When I noticed how painfully thin he was I told the wife to take him to the doctor. She took him to the clinic but nobody was there so she

came home". The couple who had two other children at the time, were described as living in two rooms which were filthy.

GENERATION Four


PETER NORMAN COVINGTON. Ref: 1236. Born: Apr-Jun 1942 at Uxbridge. Father: Cecil Norman Marcus, Father Ref: 143. Mother: Craig, Frances

R, Mother Ref: 4921. Appears on lists of emigration by boat travelling from London to the Melbourne, Australia in 1949 travelling with mother. Later

Changed name to Peter Norman Covington-Thomas.

"Voyager survivor gets $2m", Glenis Green From: The Courier-Mail September 26, 2007 12:00AM

"A Sunshine Coast man who was yesterday awarded more than $2 million in damages in the biggest payout yet to a survivor of the Voyager disaster

43 years ago said he felt "vindicated".

But after his 12-year court battle he said he also felt betrayed by his own Government's handling of the issue.

Peter Covington-Thomas, 65, of Maroochydore, said that while he was still on tenterhooks wondering whether the Commonwealth would appeal

against the payout, he hoped it would be the "finality" he had been seeking for so long.

"I feel vindicated it's been a long time in happening," he said. "The accident happened in February 1964 and I've been in the legal system since

1995. It's a fair amount of time and it's been a lot of trauma."

Mr Covington-Thomas's legal counsel James Taylor, who has fought for compensation for up to 200 other survivors since 1983, said the latest payout

was so large because it had finally been proven that able seamen such as Mr Covington-Thomas would have had long careers in the Navy and

pensions for life if not for the disaster.

"The Commonwealth has stonewalled us all the way."

Mr Taylor said. "But we now know from statistics that were blocked before that more than 90 per cent of servicemen who had done service for nine

years went on to serve for 20 years and were entitled to pensions for life."

The payout decision, handed down by Justice David Kirby yesterday in the NSW Supreme Court continued the long list of damages claims in the

wake of the 1964 collision between the aircraft carrier HMAS Melbourne and destroyer HMAS Voyager which killed 82 men.

Mr Taylor said Mr Covington-Thomas, who was just 19 when the disaster happened during exercises off the NSW coast, had suffered severe post

traumatic stress disorder as well as acute depression and anxiety.

Mr Covington-Thomas said he still had flashbacks every day of that fateful night when as a crewman on the Melbourne he was one of the first

rescuers alongside the Voyager, which had been cut in half by the impact.

"The whole night was just a nightmare and still is," he said.

Mr Covington-Thomas said he was angry and frustrated that the Commonwealth had dragged out the compensation process for so long.

He urged others fighting for compensation to "stay the course".

"It's so important - you need to be taken care of," he said.

Most other survivors of the Voyager disaster have received

compensation payments of $1 million to about $1.25 million.

The World Today - Tuesday, 25 September , 2007 12:44:00


Reporter: Nicole Butler

"ELEANOR HALL: The New South Wales Supreme Court has awarded more than $2-million in damages to a Queensland man who survived the

Voyager naval disaster more than 40 years ago.

Eighty-two men were killed in the collision between HMAS Melbourne and HMAS Voyager in 1964.

Peter Covington-Thomas survived the horrific crash on board the Melbourne*, but he later suffered post-traumatic stress and his naval career also

suffered.

Today the 65-year-old won his case against the Commonwealth and received the biggest payout so far awarded over the maritime disaster.

Mr Covington-Thomas has been speaking to Nicole Butler about his win in court.

NICOLE BUTLER: Mr Covington-Thomas, how do you feel today, now that this has finally been settled?

PETER COVINGTON-THOMAS: Well, I'll see some light at the end of the tunnel of course, providing that the ADF (Australian Defence Force)

doesn't put me through the trauma of waiting to find out whether they're going to appeal it or not, which is their right to do of course. But, you know,

that's going to be pretty traumatic for me, and I think I've been put through the mill for quite long enough actually.

NICOLE BUTLER: How long has this been going on?

PETER COVINGTON-THOMAS: Ah, the accident was on the 10th of February 1964, and I went into the legal system in 1995.

NICOLE BUTLER: So as well as suffering distress of the accident, you've had a lot of stress with the legal ramifications?

PETER COVINGTON-THOMAS: That's correct.

NICOLE BUTLER: How did the accident affect you?

PETER COVINGTON-THOMAS: Ah, very touchy on a subject which is something that I do not like to discuss about too much because it brings too

much pain forward from the actual night of the accident.

You know, I've had to go through so many times about telling people about this, telling not only legal people but the medical profession to reach

this point, and if anybody's been through anything traumatic they'll understand where I'm coming from. You don't want to re-talk about or re-live it.

So it's affected me for many, many, many years, yeah.

NICOLE BUTLER: Do you feel now that this court decision has come down, even though there's an appeal possibly pending, do you feel this will

help you move forward?

PETER COVINGTON-THOMAS: Yes, because this brings a finality to it, and I need that finality to try and push on with the rest of my life.

NICOLE BUTLER: The compensation amount, $2-million, that will obviously help you with medical care and it recognises what you've been

through. Are you happy with that amount?

PETER COVINGTON-THOMAS: Yes, but one has to consider that I've had a legal team working with me since 1995, and they well and truly earned

their money. So that, you know, if people out there saying "oh wow, this man's just got $2-million", they've got to understand that there are legal

expenses that have to come out of this.

I would've settled for less had they come to the party back then, but they have pushed this to this point.


NICOLE BUTLER: So do you feel though too that, you know, this in some way makes up for that lost career? The court heard you were a sailor full of

promise, so obviously it was something that you enjoyed. Do you feel this is recognition of that quality of life that you've missed?

PETER COVINGTON-THOMAS: Yes.

NICOLE BUTLER: Would you encourage other people to go down the same road as you?

PETER COVINGTON-THOMAS: I certainly, I certainly would. All those ex-sailors out there that went through this, hang in there men because you

can work through this, it's just a matter of time to get through. So don't give up hope of getting through, keep working towards that goal.

ELEANOR HALL: That's Peter Covington-Thomas speaking to Nicole Butler."

Mother Ref: 4663. Died: Oct-Dec 1951 at Abergavenny aged 0. Extracts from News of the World Library 1951. "Baby Colin David Covington

weighed 5lb 9oz when he was born, and three months later his weight should have been 13lb. It was 5lb 8oz - one ounce less than at birth - and he

died of starvation. A doctor gave this evidence yesterday at Abergavenny, Monmouthshire.. Colin's parents, 27 year old Donald Roy Covington and

his 24 year-old wife Florence, of Flannel Street, Abergavenny were found guilty of negligence and sentenced to 4 months and 9 months

respectively.

Dr Edward Jordan told the court that he had twice treated Mrs Covington at her home for jaundice, and neither she nor her husband asked him to

look at the baby.

Giving evidence about the baby's weight at death on June 24th, Dr Dennis Lyons said he had to rub hard with cotton wool to remove dirt of many

days standing. He could see no fat on the whole body. There was no trace of disease. The child died of debility due to starvation.

"It must have been apparent to the average intelligence for at least a fortnight that the child was going to die, and grossly apparent during the week

before death. Skilled care could have saved him in the last week" sid the doctor. A neighbour Mrs Clara Knight said she thought "the child was a

lovely baby when it came from hospital. A month later it did not look so well"
