Brian Winspear - Enlistment celebration

Running time
49 sec
Date made
Department of Veterans' Affairs


At nineteen I put my name down and we were called up. Had to go into the reserve for about twelve months.

We had to learn a bit of Morse code and a few things like that and when we were called up, there were three other blokes in Hobart, and we were called up together and to sign the papers for the day.

So we decided to celebrate and caught the train to Wrest Point and got pretty sozzled there and caught a tram back and went to Melbourne the next day.
