  1. Hi Ed I was away when you posted this and I've only just seen it. Just like the story of the 2/2, the awful history of the sexual slavery imposed by the Japanese on girls and women in the areas they occupied should be much more widely known. Great work. Rob
  2. I see that the autographs have a category for "respectable types" and "border line cases", with only a few placing themselves in the former category and most squeezing in on the latter. The last of the translations at the top of each of those pages seems to be Pidgin. Gutpela is "good fella", so the first category is for good fella men. In the second category, "liklik" is little. Therefore, "Gutpela liklik" is for blokes who are only a little bit good...
  3. And I enjoyed the reference to "Liquid refreshment". Who would have thought these chaps would have such a thing?
  4. Thanks, Beau. That's wonderful. Great to see the autographs, too. Cheers Rob Crossing
  5. Last year, the association donated money to St Anthony's International School in Dili, for the construction of a classroom building. In April 2019, members of the committee attended the opening of the Keith Hayes Building, named in honour of 2/2 veteran, the late Keith Hayes OAM. The school recently invited members of the association to attend its annual graduation ceremony, on 14 December 2019. A granddaughter of 2/2 veteran Warwick Crossing, Adelaide Crossing, who was in Dili as part of her studies with the University of Sydney, accepted the association's invitation to attend the ceremony on the association's behalf. Adelaide says she was honoured to be invited to attend and was very impressed by the students and the school. In speeches, staff and students paid tribute to the association's generosity.
