25th February, 2008 the new Vietnam Gallery at the Australian War Memorial, Canberra was officially opened by the Prime Minister Kevin Rudd. I had been approached by the Content Leader Libby Stewart sometime earlier confirming that the AWM was about to undergo extensive renovations. I decided to donate several items of memorabilia and they appear in a glass wall case located near the Helicoptor donated by Dick Smith. The items consist of various documents, housewife, knife fork & spoon set, shaving kit and many other personal items. Libby was happy, at my insistance, for me to provide an educational display centered mainly around the soldier who was called up for National Service.
