    Nice photos. Seeing the Aboriginal radio operator made me wonder. Did the Australian military utilize Aboriginals as code talkers in the same way the US utilized Native Americans?

    Aboriginals as code talkers - absolutely not.

    Matt the native American code talkers were only a US service concept. No indigenous Australians were used in this capacity during WW2 or later conflicts.
    Worth noting is Australia had no real racial boundries with regard to indigenous Australians serving in Army combat roles during WW2. The first Australian Aboriginal Infantry Officer was commissioned during this conflict (Lt Reg Saunders).

    Great photos Bob, I know how tricky it is to get good shots in a dim museum with items behind glass. I must get back up to Bandy' again too.

    Yeah I must get back there too, it has been a fair while since I took those shots, so I guess it has changed around a fair bit since then...

    Cheers,
