The National Archives of Australia (NAA) emailed me today (1 October 2013) to say that they had put a digital copy of my grandfather Edwin William Carr’s WW2 army record on their website.
His record of service in the First World War has been available on the NAA website for many years but not the WW2 record.
Slip re-enlisted in the Australian Army in March 1940, at the age of 41. He served, with the rank of Lieutenant, then Captain, as an instructor with the Army's School of Physical & Recreational Training at Frankston, Victoria in 1940.
Find grandpa’s WW2 record on the NAA website. His Service Number was N60390.
A fellow instructor at the school was the legendary Don Bradman. Here’s a photo of grandpa and the Don in 1940.
