What more can I say about Eddie, he was and is R.A.R. to the core.
His one big thrill in life has always been to tell any Brit vets he meets,
how bloody pleased he was to swap armies. He joined the Brit army as a Boy
Soldier, aged about 15 I think. Then after serving in various units
including airborne during the Berlin Airlift, he took the chance to swap
armies. The B/S was getting to him back in England, and the call went
around for volunteers to change to the Aussies and serve in Korea.
is what he did, and we were lucky to have him with us there.
