Peace with Japan: Stan's Journey from War to Peace

History 10

Join Stan Mellick OAM, as he takes you on a journey throughout his time in World War II and life after the war. He reminisces about life in New Guinea, what happened when Peace was announced and when his own personal war with Japan came to an end.
