Jeff Tun Tin: From Burma to Vietnam

Posted on: Mon 30 Jan 2023

Born in Burma in 1948 it was a surprise for Jeff to be informed in the early 1960s by his Anglo-Indian mother after the death of his Dutch-Burmese father that they were English and they were going ‘home’ to England!   But fate had other plans for young Jeffrey Keith Tun Tin who would go on to serve with distinction in the Australian Army, including two tours of duty in Vietnam, and the heartbreaking loss of his son, murdered in 2011.  How does a parent survive such a thing?
