Jim Vane - Discipline

Running time

Department of Veterans' Affairs


Uh, discipline, I'd never met discipline before, and we had to abide by it, marching, and get in line when you're marching. We got to know left turn, right turn. Which was our left and our right, and there's always somebody that made the wrong turn, and that type of discipline, and getting up in the morning.

Where we went, it was very cold. I grew up in the centre where very few frosts were in wintertime, but I got up on the first morning, and lo and behold, the wire on the fence was all white as far as you could see, it was that damn cold, and a little westerly wind blowing. All them things were so different to home, you know?
