Wednesday night @ GSQ: Brisbane at war- military locations & using DNA

March 27 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Peter Dunn will show us details, including locations and numerous photos of many forgotten military camps in the Brisbane area. You will be amazed by the connections that a number of famous people had with these locations in Brisbane during WWII. He will also discuss the many children left behind by US soldiers and successful use of a DNA test to find a child of an American soldier.

For members only with a gold coin contribution.


Presenter: Peter Dunn

Peter is the Webmaster and owner of the popular “Australia @ War” web site www.ozatwar.com which contains everything you would want to know about military activities in Australia during WWII. WWII historians have stated that the “Australia @ War” web site is a better source for covering WWII military activities on the home front than the official histories.
