Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm 65 years young; an ex serviceman who served 12 years in the Australian Regular Army, with no overseas service, in the foodstuffs and stores section in the Royal Australian Army Ordnance Corps (RAAOC).
Upon my discharge I went out and mowed lawns in my local area for 15 years until an old Army problem emerged. I fell from the high-beam in the gym and injured my lower back and am now on DVA pension for the problem. I'm now a Gold card holder and on the Aged Pension so have plenty of time on my side.
I live at Cleveland, in beautiful sunny Queensland in one the best and safest countries in the world - AUSTRALIA.
I took up military research about 30 years ago when I went to the National Archives (NAA) here in Brisbane and found they had records of all Queensland service personnel who had served in World War 2 and beyond. Anyone can access records that over 30 years old.
So with the information I had on hand I began to compile a large database on these soldiers and when DVA put out their World War 2 Nominal Roll if gave me the information I required to carry on.
Am now got myself interested in Cemetery graves and have started on Hemmant and Cleveland Cemeteries. So if you need a Hemmant or a Clevleand Cemetery grave photo then please ask me. Permission will be required to use my photos no matter where you wish to place them and this includes Ancestry.com.

RE: Jane Walwin Pritchard
Did try and look for you other requests today John, but got chatting to the chairman or president from Friends of Toowong and ran out of time. Hopefully I will be able to get back there soon as it's approx. 45 mins from where I live.
