1. Bailey, Mark. The strategic and trade protection implications of Anglo- Australian maritime trade 1885-1942.

Degree: Humanities & Social Sciences, 2019, University of New South Wales

This thesis sets out an original approach to understanding the protection of maritime trade on which the British Empire depended, using the case study of the Anglo-Australian strategic and economic relationship. The chronological parameters of 1885 and 1942 are driven by this Anglo-Australian connection. 1885 saw Colonial concurrence on sharing the burden of trade protection. 1942 marks the collapse of the Imperial trade protection strategy in Asia. The main themes are how trade protection was developed into a global structure during WWI and institutionalised post-war as a shared responsibility. The Anglo-Australian strategic relationship is used because Australia was the only Dominion to enter into a trade protection burden-sharing relationship with Britain. No other work has examined the strategic and trade protection implications of maritime trade from this perspective.This thesis fills a gap in historical knowledge concerning a fundamental maritime capability; the protection of maritime trade. It uses the Anglo-Australian strategic, maritime, cultural and economic relationship as a case study to illustrate how an efficient global trade protection system was developed during the general war which ended the first globalisation. WWI destroyed the globalised maritime trading system which had developed by 1914. The system was elastic, failing gradually enough to be replaced by centralised state control. Less efficient, state control enabled a damaged maritime trade system to meet the minimal demands of the Empire’s civil and war economies as well as those of the Empire’s allies. Imperial sea power denied the Central Powers use of the world-ocean and swiftly defeated the raiding cruisers. A new submarine threat arose yet the trade protection system was developed through stages to defeat this as well. This system, called Naval Control of Shipping (NCS), was institutionalised post-1918 by both the RN and RAN as part of a global exercise in ‘burden sharing’ between the UK and its Dominions. It was refreshed after the strategic shock of the 1931 Manchurian Crisis, activated during the 1938 Munich Crisis and mobilised smoothly across the world in 1939. Again in 1939 the NCS system enabled the British to centrally control and protect their global maritime trade and to defeat the German raider and submarine threats.

2. Du Toit, Allan. Southern Sentinel: The Anglo-South African Simon's Town Agreements and the Collective Defence of the Cape Sea Route during the Cold War, 1945-1975.

Degree: Humanities & Social Sciences, 2019, University of New South Wales

This study, based on British and South African archival records, much of them previously classified, examines the Anglo-South African partnership for the collective defence of the strategically important sea route round the Cape of Good Hope from 1945 to 1975 during the era of post-war British imperial drawdown, with an increasingly isolated South Africa, defined by its racial policies, taking a strident nationalist and anti-Communist path. It is a study of international naval cooperation, basing and interoperability, and of the related development of the South African Navy, within the context of diplomatic and defence relations between London and Pretoria and as part of broader Commonwealth and Western defence arrangements during the Cold War. The defence of the Cape sea route, which had been vitally important to Britain and the Allied cause during the Second World War, was achieved through the interconnected 1921 Anglo-South African Simon’s Town arrangements and the subsequent Simon’s Town Agreement which superseded them in 1955. These agreements formed a continuum that provided for the safeguarding of the Cape sea route during this period. Despite being the subject of intense political controversy linked to abhorrence of apartheid, presenting successive British Governments with the dilemma of balancing strategic relevance and political liability, there was an overall continuity of strategic themes throughout the period. This was largely because of the fundamental and continued belief by both signatories in the strategic importance of one of the world’s most vital sea routes. Although strategically still relevant, the Agreement was finally terminated in 1975 essentially for political reasons at a time when Britain had finally withdrawn from East of Suez and was refocussing on its NATO commitments, and when South Africa was becoming increasing isolated internationally because of its apartheid policies. The Agreement and the preceding Simon’s Town arrangements nonetheless served the grand strategic and national interests of both nations and the broader Western alliance effectively during the first three decades of the Cold War.
