Memories

  • Place of Birth correction: born Charters Towers Queensland 6/07/2012
  • My sister, Claire, was 11 years old, when our Dad went to the war. Thanks to the Gympie people who planted trees for all who didn't return. 1/07/2012
  • My father left for the war when I was 5 months old, so I have no memories of him. He served in New Guinea in the ANGAU on coast watch. 1/07/2012
