    Berwin Francis DENNIS

    Berwin joined the unit on Timor from the Australian Army Pay Corps as a Sergeant, after the fall of Koepang, approx March 1942. He served in Headquarters Group and compiled a nominal roll of the unit in Aug and Sept 1942, which was the only Roll of the unit for those serving on Timor during those two months. After the campaign on Timor, he embarked with the unit, for Australia aboard the Royal Dutch destroyer “Tjerk Hiddes” on either 11 Dec 1942 or 16 Dec 1942, as the embarkation rolls do not differentiate. Left the unit on return to Australia and served as a Warrant Officer, Class II with D.A.O. 1943-45. He was discharged on 10 Sept 1945. Berwin was awarded the Efficiency Medal in the Commonwealth of Australia Gazette No-22 Apr 1948.

    The latest edition of Courier is now available for download here. I'm also pleased to announce the Double Reds pin is now available for purchase via our online store. This pin is modelled to match the original association pin in a faithful representation of the unit's double diamond color patch. It's made with vitreous enamel, as opposed to paint, and is made in Australia. Order yours now, before stock runs out! We're also pleased to announce Archie Campbell's "The Double Reds of Timor" is now available for purchase as a digital PDF also via our online store.
