John Harrison: Royal Australian Survey Corps
Posted on: Mon 31 Jul 2017
As a young enlistee into the Army’s Royal Australian Survey Corps, John headed off to the Northern Territory in 1957 with a survey chain, a couple of axes and a few fellow Surveyors to map previously uncharted areas. Exciting times. It’s a unique story giving us insight to an Army Corps that no longer exists, but one that has played a huge role in both our Defence Forces and in the development of Australia.
