Being in the post office we were pretty popular girls, you know because even when I was walking through Sydney on leave a soldier would come up and say (gasp) and he'd see the colour patch he'd say "Any mail for me today, postie?"

So, I would say no, not today or whatever. Yeah, so we were popular where we were because they knew that we were the contact with their loved ones you know, so. It was a good life.
