” My husband served in the army as a gunner in WWII. He signed up day 1 of the war and served until the treaty papers were signed. He was deployed to the Middle East as part of the Second 12th Australian Field Regiment 9th Division. They fought the German general Erwin Rommel and his tanks as one of the original members of the infamous Australian-led garrison the Rats of Tobruk. Over the course of the entire war, they had fired the most bullets from the cannon he was stationed on.”
