I’m still (and will be for years to come) going through papers. Found this on Doris Carter; printed in 1996.

I remember the Anzac Day this article refers to. I didn’t get into Melbourne and listened from my bed. ‘I slept in’. It was before there were permanent places in the march. Eventually the Air Force marched later and it was easier to get into town in time.

Doris describes the RAAF as ‘one big family’. She says “Once you are in it, you feel like you are always in it.” I think we can all understand this. One of my friends calls us the sisterhood. That it is…
