“There’s so much we can learn from those times. Everybody gave something. In every street people were working to support soldiers or PoWs… It was pulling together and thinking about others a bit more.”

It has always been about helping humanity and trying to ease suffering. The effort it took to support Australians overseas was amazing – lots of sacrifices.”
