My thanks to the Australian Commando Association for sending this article.
If you missed the recent streaming of the US Ambassador to Australia, Ambassador
Caroline Kennedy, daughter of US President John Fitzgerald Kennedy links up with Coastwatchers Jim Burrowes and Ron (Dixie) Lee, your chance to see it is here.
Hi all, I was recently privileged, together with fellow Coastwatcher Dixie Lee, to spend time with the new US Ambassador to Australia, Ambassador
Caroline Kennedy, daughter of US President John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
This meeting held as part of a commemorative event at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra was organized by the US Embassy so that
Ambassador Kennedy could acknowledge the role of Australian and Solomon Island Coastwatchers in rescuing her father, later US President Kennedy,
during World War II.
I have now had a chance to post an account of this commemorative event on my website. If you are interested, you can read about it by clicking
