Our mission is to interview as many WWII Veterans as possible before the opportunity is lost. The project has commenced in Queensland but will be expanding throughout Australia.
The interviews are edited into documentaries (approximately 30 minutes in length) which are being donated to the John Oxley Library (QLD) and State Libraries nationally to be included in their WWII collections. The documentaries are also available Here
A copy of each documentary will be given to the Veteran’s family as a keepsake.

“Thank you very much. I appreciate the trouble you went to. Particularly how you included the photos of my family, my wife and my brother (who passed away last year). I couldn’t believe it when I saw the photos of the island and the planes. It was very emotional to see the film for the first time. Thank you so much.”
“The students at Palmwoods ask me some questions but mostly they are just thankful I come to the (Anzac Day) ceremony. I am glad I still had the clippings with my old photos. I haven’t had them out for a long time. Thanks for coming all the way up here and I hope my memories have done the job. You’ve made an old man’s day.”
