After a few days without getting out much I thought it would be a good idea to head out with Varena and explore. It was an enjoyable day, and reinforcement that the weather and environment are so different in Townsville.
One particular story at Jezzine Barracks struck me. It was about a bloke who won a VC in WW2 for his actions, but refused a second VC for his outstanding actions later on, saying that he'd only accept another one if all the blokes involved received one! Remarkable!
