Episode 3 – The Guides

Welcome to the third episode of the Australian War history podcast. In this episode, we look at the role that the Timor Creados played in helping to defend against the Japanese invasion. An ambush that got out of hand quickly. Plus a tragic event that Doc Wheatly was still moved by, even though a half-century had passed. 

Some of the books we use to cross-check facts:

All the Bull’s Men

A History of the 2nd Independent Company and 2/2 Commando Squadron

  1. I was very fortunate to record around 12 hrs of interviews with Doc before he died. I hope one day to be able to transcribe the tapes.

    1. Hi Bob,

      If you can get the recording into a digital format, online transcribing is fairly cheap. $1 a minute in some cases.
