Remembrance Day 2019 – Lest we forget the men and boys of the Small Ships WW2

Posted on: Mon 11 Nov 2019

Remembrance Day 2019      

Quote:  David Lloyd Royal Australian Navy Veteran – “Many of us would not be here today if it hadn’t been for the (Aussie) men and boys of the US Army Small Ships.   … their unit reflected the peril that Australia was in. What country would send 70year old men, men who were disabled, unfit for service, and young boys into action against a vicious enemy who had slaughtered  hundreds of thousands, millions in China, and here were these old men and young boys putting their hands up and going off to fight.  Incredible!”
