Daniel An­drews

Big Rigs - - TRUCKIN’ IN THE TROPICS -

ARMY driver Pte Daniel An­drews is Bris­bane-based and has been busy trans­port­ing heavy equip­ment be­tween there and a high range train­ing area near Townsville.

The 28-year-old Daniel drives an old In­ter­na­tional S-Line and was hav­ing a rest in the park­ing area of the BP Clu­den Road­house when Big Rigs saw him on Septem­ber 15.

He was sit­ting on a fold-up seat in the shade be­tween two trucks.

“I am tak­ing an AS-4 am­bu­lance ve­hi­cle back to Bris­bane and it had been at high range,” he said.

Pte An­drews has been in the Armed Forces for nine years and reck­ons many parts of the Bruce High­way need work. “Es­pe­cially the sec­tion north of Rock­hamp­ton,” he said. The qui­etly spo­ken Pte An­drews said the In­ter­na­tional was a good re­li­able truck.

“It did get a bit hot com­ing up the range to­day but is a good,” he said.

Pte An­drews is a mem­ber of 7th Com­bat Ser­vice Sup­port Bat­tal­ion and loves army life.
