It's a T-class sub - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_T-class_submarine
Definitely not Aussie, they had no submarines at the time, but Royal Navy subs were based there - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Aus ... to_present

That's a 12-metre class sailing race, I've seen many lists and starting orders like that.

Those papers and photos look really fragile, they should really be professionally preserved.
