ripples of wartime



Di Fairhead went to the Vietnam War as a physiotherapist in 1969, assisting the rehabilitation of injured Australian soldiers. She remembers her tour of duty not just for the peculiar challenges of the military hospital but also for the intense camaraderie amongst members of her team and amongst the men she treated.

The injuries were horrific – especially the guys who’d survived mine incidents. But even though they were in really bad shape they’d always be asking how their mates were. That mateship thing was just incredible.
