Mina Lay Posted September 30, 2020 Share Posted September 30, 2020 Hello, This is a long shot but I’m interested in getting information and possibly in touch with any families of soldiers who were in Bobonaro and Atsabe (Timor Leste). My grandma’s parents (Chinese Timorese) regularly cooked and fed some Australian troops (they came in groups of 3 to 10) in Bobonaro. My grandma was only young at the time and she remembers an older solider who came every morning for a while for coffee. One of the soldier’s gave her parents some small scissors, I’m guessing to say thank you, which we still have today. My grandma’s house was bombed by the Japanese troops and they lost everything but they fortunately survived as they had ran into hiding when they heard the planes coming. My grandpa (who has passed away) and his family were in Atsabe and they used to cook and feed the Australian troops there. I would love to obtain more information or even possibly hear from any families of soldiers who were in these towns. Thanks, Mina Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
