I greatly appreciate your sending me your site "Australians at War" where I have done a lot of searching...........
My father was stationed somewhere in Australia during 43/44 I believed it was in the NT,....... but just now I have found a base Camp Sand Creek in South Australia.........my mother was managing a hotel in SA during this time, when she met my father..........could you identify where exactly the Camp Sand Creek was????? I don't know the name of the hotel she managed.....but I had an idea it was called Dry Creek??????
By the way Dad was with the 5th Air Force, 380th BG 529th BS,..........any help.??
