We danced all night in Martin Place, I remember that. I remember hearing about the bomb dropping, and what could it possibly be? Yeah, it's big enough to stop the war, it must be extraordinary thing. Well we thought it might just actually go off and keep on going all around the world, pleased it hadn't.

We didn't know anything about it. Well it was announced, the war's over, the Japanese have got it, oh, hallelujah. It was just wonderful, we thought we're never going to get home. Yeah, it seemed to be just such an endless period, we're never going to live a normal life again. Just how are we ever going to finish this off?
