From an orphanage to a happy life in Australia via Tobruk

This year I was in the bush in the middle of South Australia on Anzac Day for a vehicle launch.  Mazda had arranged a flag pole and flag and at dawn we held a remembrance get together. It was a time to reflect on my father’s life and sacrifices.

 

My father was born in the UK and raised in an orphanage. He emigrated to Australia in 1937 and enlisted in the Australian army at the start of the Second World War. He was at Tobruk when the siege started but was medically evacuated when he was injured. He went on to serve in New Guinea.

 

I dug out some of my father’s memorabilia and put it on a video
