Harvey Blundell

Harvey Blundell served in the Australian Army in New Guinea. During his tour he experienced some of the hardships of war.

Yeah well at one stage I believe, I wasn't at that time but at Rockhampton I think it was. The Yank, the Yankees coming home on leave and the Aussies were going back. They said, 'good on you Aussie, you're going back to fight for us, we'll look after your wives while you're away.' So then all of a sudden.

Q: It was on.

It was on. He pulled a knife, so the boys pulled their bayonets. And it was on.
