Don Johnson - The Fiji Royal Naval Reserve
I joined the Fiji Naval Reserve which was later the Fiji Royal Naval Reserve. RNR…We didn't have the training out here. When I came back to Australia after the war, I re-entered wanting to serve full time.
They are only taking two-year recruits then and we did our training at Flinders in the middle of winter and it was excellent training, but we didn't have that originally in Fiji in 1942.
