Hi from Redland Bay Australia, I'm a retired civil engineer & have only recently found the time to research my fathers war records. Dad served in Borneo & New Guinea
and was a member of the 1st Australian Tank Battalion which landed on Balikpapan(Borneo) with the US on 1 July 1945. Unfortunately Dad didn't talk about the war & I didn't ask many questions when I was young so I have little information but would like to find out more if possible. My Mums still alive (92 this year) but also knows little of Dads service though fortunately she did keep his service book & medals from the war in the Pacific.
