Department of Veterans' Affairs


I knew him very well before the war. He was a bit of a loner. He was a fruit picker at Berri which was only about twelve miles from Renmark but he was a bit of a boxer and quite often at Renmark about every six weeks there'd be a boxing competition at Renmark and he always participated. He was a nice fella, tough. So our battalion ended up with four VC winners.
