I served in the army for 37 years and saw two tours on the middle east.
Over the last couple of years I have been trying to obtain the signature of Ben Roberts-Smith and Keith Payne, both VC recipients.
I have already obtained the signatures of the other recipients.
The intent of my plight is to present the book with all the signatories to the President of the Wangaratta RSL, LTGEN Ash Power AO DSC.
I do hope you can help me in my quest?
