    Living Soldiers

    I don't want to be morbid, but are there any surviving members of the 2/2 as most of the men would be in their late 90's now? I usually do a search around Anzac for any articles or interviews relating to the 2/2 but have not seen anything on these great men for a couple of years ie. Keith Hayes, Fred Otway & Jack Hanson article in 2016. Thanks. Regards, Chantal.

    Courier

    Hi, I am having trouble opening the December 1976 link to The Courier. Is it just me or is there a problem with that one, all the others in 1976 have opened for me? Thank you. Regards, Chantal.

    Safaris & Reunions

    Hi, I am trying to date some photos and wondered if you would you have a list of Safari & Reunion locations and dates before I go searching through the Courier archives? Thanks. Regards, Chantal.

    Thanks Peter, nice to know they are still going well! I would have loved to have joined the Timor trip to learn more about their time there & I wish my grandfather had been able to tell me more. Thanks.
