I didn't think about the Army before I joined. When the war started, you know, I remember the day we declared war, on a cattle property, mostly cattle actually.

One of the chaps went down to the homestead and came back and said that we were at war, you know, with the Germans.

Then I went to join the Air Force, and they said, "Oh no, you're not going be a fighter pilot. You have a very poor education, so that you can be a guard or cook if you want to be in the Air Force."
