Posted on: Mon 9 May 2022

Episode 2: We take up the story with RAASC veterans David Childs, Fred ‘Blue’ Hickey and Glen Hutley who were in the convoy travelling from Victoria to the little town of Innisfail in Far North Queensland in 1964, and RAAC Veteran Peter McDonald who tells us what happened when they all got to Innisfail to conduct trials on wheeled and tracked vehicles and an APC for Australia to take to Vietnam.

RAAC Veteran Craig Haydock is MC for the project.
