Each volume of Australian Maritime Issues: SPC-A Annual is a compilation of the year's Semaphore newsletters, winning entries to the Peter Mitchell Essay Competition, Synnot lectures, and shorter papers on a variety of naval and maritime issues. The Synnot lectures honour the memory of Admiral Sir Anthony Synnot, who was Chief of Naval Staff (1976-79) and Chief of the Defence Force Staff (1979-82), and in 2006 were conducted by Dr Stan Weeks who spoke on the 1000-ship navy concept, and the transformation of naval forces. Two important papers included in this volume are the declassified 1959 and 1967 versions of the Radford-Collins Agreement, the cornerstone of US Navy and RAN sea lines of communication protection in the Pacific Ocean.
