The end of hostilities WW2, September 2, 1945

Last updated on 02-Sep-20

To mark this significant date, the society has uploaded 2 illustrated essays and an illustrated war record listing for two of Phillip Island's WW2 veterans: Les Findlay, who served in Darwin during the bombing, then in the horrors of jungle warfare in New Guinea. We thank the families, the Australian War Memorial and the National Archives of Australia for the information used in these essays..
