They decided to send us to Canberra to form a squadron. A squadron had come down from Darwin and had to be reformed in Canberra. It was, the 13 Squadron it was and we had to reform the squadron.

We went down as armourers' assistants. The aircraft we had there were PV 1 Ventura, the navy type. There were two types of Venturas, a navy and an army one. In the navy type we used to go out and drop depth charges and all that sort of stuff.
