Bernard Scanlan - Malaria
Well, that was one of the big pitfalls of the battalion, malaria. Although you wanted treatment for it, it was always a risk of someone getting ... even those that were on treatment were still going down with it. I had a relapse of a recurrent variety of BT malaria.
I came home on leave at one period, and I did two trips to Lismore Base Hospital. The only base hospital at Lismore was the government. It had a government officer there to treat you, but it was something that took a long time to get out of the system.
