I didn’t find out till I was an adult that Uncle Alf was in Papua New Guinea in World War II.
I don’t know what he did there but he actually looks pretty happy in this photo. I also don’t know who the two men with him are.
My uncle (dad’s brother) got together with a few mates some years ago, to record Uncle Alf’s memories from his past. It was a great idea but when I asked my uncle about this he said the tape recorder didn’t work so they have no record of it.
Unfortunately Uncle Alf has since died so they weren’t able to redo the recording.
