The tour of sites connected with the No.2 Independent Company’s (2/2) campaign against the Japanese on Portuguese Timor during 1942 began on Sunday 22 April and was successfully concluded on Wednesday 2 May. The tour was led by 2/2 Commando Association Committee member Ed Willis and guided by Julio dos Santos of Timor Adventures. 12 people participated in the tour including 11 family members of 2/2 soldiers, notably Genevieve Isbell and Tricia Parr, daughters of Major Alexander (Allan) Spence the C.O. for most of the campaign. Mick Stone, Program Director of Timor Awakening, was also a valuable tour member. A map of the tour route and the itinerary are attached to this post as well as a slideshow of highlight photos from the tour.
