We Were WMMS: The War Of The Airwaves
(Don A Brown, Ainslie, ACT 1992)
Don Brown
"Most of them didn't know exactly what they were getting into when they paraded for the first time at Melbourne's exhibition building. But these RAAF recruits were destined to be among a vital, mainly unsung, part of Australia's war efforts. For the first time, our Wireless Maintenance Mechanics recollect how they managed to keep the RAAF's airwaves open. In this collection of reminiscences, thirty Wireless Maintenance Mechanics recollect how they managed to keep the RAAF's airwaves open during WWII. From Australia to New Guinea, from the deadly serious memories of being in the front line of an invading force to set up communications, to the humour of being swept along in a packing crate boat during a flood, these are all very personal stories."
