TGoG Podcast 019 – In The Navy

TGOG+podcast+logo+new+1400+v2We all have a past that comes up every so often, and mine was 20 years of service in the Royal Australian Navy.

Yesterday, I was interviewed by my niece Ashley for a history project about war in the 20th century.  She approached me due to my service in 1990 at the start of the conflict in the Persian Gulf.

It is quite a good interview, and at the very end I try and make a point about the reason for the conflict, besides the obvious liberation of Kuwait. I could have gone a bit deeper, but I didn’t want to spoil her project!

Also, I do not glorify or promote war nor conflict.  It serves no purpose, so I just tell it how it was like at the time during this part of my life.

Anyway, enjoy the podcast.

I certainly have had a full life so far!

    @ Dad,

    Yes it was sad when you were not there to see me leave, however that is a lot of water under the bridge old man. Glad you are still around to enjoy life with me now!

    @ Son,

    You were the one crawling on it when we lived in Canberra. I am glad we got it cleaned occasionally!
