'Ambon' is now released as a double CD, warmly recorded at Sydney's Studios 301 by Tim Whitten; performed by twelve of Australia's top musicians: Swanton on double bass, Sandy Evans and Paul Cutlan (wind), James Greening and Alex Silver (brass), Chuck Morgan (ukulele), James Eccles (Stuart Swanton's viola), Michel Rose (pedal steel guitar), and Jon Pease (guitar). Providing immense drive and colour are percussionists Ron Reeves (Indonesian kendang), Fabian Hevia (cajon) and Hamish Stuart (drum kit).

The double album, richly packaged with a booklet full of historical photos, and copious information and explanation by Swanton, artfully opens out the story of Gull Force to a wide audience.

Lloyd says "I wanted to pay tribute to the bravery and decency of my uncle. I wanted, whilst not shying away from the confronting horror of Ambon, to identify elements of joy and beauty in the tragedy.

And finally, I wanted to draw people into the story, as I believe it's an important one for all Australians, and in fact anyone with an interest in Second World War history.

As I got deeper into this project I realised that, as both a professional musician of long experience, and someone in possession of this precious and rare historical document, I had a veritable obligation to bring this important story to life as best as I could.'
