I thought that readers would be interested to know that WO1 Frederick Alexander Wilson will be placed on the Roll of Honour at the Australian War Memorial on 11 November 2014.

He will be in the section known as the Roll of Honour Operational Service panel "Papua New Guinea, 1947 -1975"

This has been confirmed to me by the AWM. Another eleven men will also be added.

Great to read this. Freddie was the uncle I never met. My dad was Philip. It truly is a great story.
