I don't know. When we got down there in Palestine and we only stayed there for a little while, that's when we had to catch a boat, we thought we might be coming back to Australia at that time because they'd been harping about taking the troops back then, so we didn't know, and apparently half way across the Indian Ocean that it was leaked, you know, what's funny about that is you can't go to Singapore because the guns are all pointing to sea and the Japs are coming down behind them, so fortunately if we'd have gone there we would have become prisoners of war there so we missed out on that. We didn't know about that until after we got back.
