POW payments

May 7th, 2011 at 03:27am

Good morning John,

Well it sure is getting cold now, I had to scrape ice off my windscreen after work this morning. Welcome to winter I think.

In regards to the payments to our surviving prisoners of war, well it’s about time. I think the reasons it hasn’t happened to date are twofold. Firstly, the Whitlam government was an anti-war ggovernment, so of course they would refuse to pay special amounts to our soldiers. Once that stigma wore off, I think governments just waited until there weren’t many POWs left so that it wouldn’t cost much.

I hope you had a wonderful time on the cruise yesterday.

Regards, Samuel Gordon-Stewart Canberra
