Anne Curtis - American/Australian rivalry

Running time
48 sec
Date made
Department of Veterans' Affairs


Our navy boys, they hated the Americans. If any of us girls were seen going out of hours and being escorted. They used to hate it. They'd let us know.

We were always aware of this because we had some Americans in offices down quite close to where we were. It was only natural if we went past, we were always friendly with them and that. But the boys, if they saw us with Americans, they didn't like it. They were very jealous I would think.
