My Father never spoke of the war except to say that in Papua New

Guinea he lived in muddy trenches. His feet were always wet and

sore as it was always pouring rain. Leeches clinging onto their

bodies were a problem all the time. Also said he lived on bully

beef. As for the fighting, it was unspeakable except for the

snipers he spoke of, the horrible living conditions and that it was

a case of shoot or be shot. Not much help I guess for what you are

looking for.
