Information on B G Dorsett & D B Campbell


Recommended Posts

I would like to follow up on a little information I have about my father, who I believe began training with the 2/2 & was injured in North Queensland then transfered to 2/8 when he had recuperated. He then served in Bougainville until the end of the war. I received a letter from B G Bert Dowsett who trained with my father in the 2/2 & I believe Bert continued in the 2/2. I am interested in any history of the 2/2 & 2/8. 

Regards,

Hugh Campbell
