Dar­win bomb­ing

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

THIS past Sun­day was 75 years to the day since World War II reached our shores when Dar­win was bombed. More than 240 peo­ple died, ships were sunk and build­ings de­stroyed in the at­tack.

In to­tal there were 97 air at­tacks on north­ern Aus­tralia.

We should be grate­ful that war has not vis­ited these shores since.

DAN TEHAN, Min­is­ter for Vet­er­ans' Af­fairs.
