Lyall Ellers WW11 RAAF: Part 1

Posted on: Mon 21 Jun 2021

Service Voices has been privileged to record many truly wonderful stories and interviews with our Veterans…  we can honestly tell you that this interview with Lyall Ellers, conducted by his daughter Christine, is up there with the best of them.  It had us on the edge of our seats all the way through…  bringing forth as it does, incredible memories from Lyall of his time in the RAAF throughout mainland Australia and into New Guinea. 

They are snippets of Australian Military history at its best.  Part 2 will broadcast on 28.06.2021
