Your History

Warwick Brooker sent this request in an email:-

I received this email from Trevor Bryant, who was secretary of 12FR (Vietnam) Association before it folded a few years ago.

I’m wondering if any of our Coral-Balmoral blokes would be interested in offering their experiences/perspectives to Kit Cullen for inclusion in his upcoming book.

Mark Jamieson wrote:-

Hi Trevor, 

I hope you are well and had a good Anzac day. As you are aware, I have slowly been gathering interviews with the veterans in the hope of putting these memories into book form. I have some good news that this is starting to build momentum and I have an author onboard who lives around the corner from me in Wollongong. His name is Kit Cullen and I have attached his bio and I would like you to send this out to the guys as I am seeking more information from them as I often do. There are some questions specifically about FSPB Coral at the bottom of the bio and these can be used as prompts for any stories the guys might have from their time in-country – not necessarily at Coral.

Best regards,

Mark Jamieson

This is your opportunity to get your own individual stories into print. At our age, who knows what other opportunities we’ll get? If you would like to contribute by sending your Vietnam story to Kit, his email address is: kitcullen123@outlook.com . If you would like to contact Mark to discuss this project with him, his email address is mark_j72@hotmail.com

100 YEARS OF ARMISTICE

Lest we forget

TODAY, as the world prepares to mark the close of the WWI centenary, we take you to the heart of the Australian experience on the Western Front as never before.


In the groundbreaking ANZAC 360 project, any Australian can travel to the battlefields of France and Belgium in immersive virtual reality 360-degree vision simply by using their phone or tablet — it’s free, simple and stunning.
Full surround vision using drone and ground-level footage lets viewers soar over the fields and explore trenches, bunkers and memorials, while period imagery and video, graphics and sound effects transport you back a century.
Brought to you by the team behind the award-winning AnzacLive, ANZAC 360 is a collaboration between News Corp Australia and the Department of Veterans Affairs, produced by Grainger Films.

The best way to experience it is to download the free ANZAC 360 app from the App Store or Google Play; clips will also be released on AnzacLive’s Facebook page. The app features key sites and events along the Australian Trail of Remembrance — the epicentre of our nation’s struggle in northwest Europe — where 295,000 Aussies served between 1916-18.

Viewers will be taken from the shocking encounters at Fromelles and Pozieres in the 1916 Somme offensive, through the heroic slog of Polygon Wood, Broodeseinde and Passchendaele a year later, to the desperate turning point of Villers-Bretonneux and push to victory begun at Le Hamel in 1918.
