South African Navy Records

Where can I get copies of Navy documents.
We are looking for documents off 1947 when a family member went awol from the SA Navy (when on a trip to Australia) and ended up as an Australian citizen.

The Navy fell under the Department of Defence.  They have a Military Records Centre and Archives in Pretoria.

I used the address [email protected] without any success.
Is there another way to contact the military archive?
