I'm researching for a proposed account of my father's WW2 life (as a signaller). The last of the four (4) campaigns in which he served was the amphibious assault on Tarakan Is (May 1945). I am aware that in 1943-1945 he was engaged in jungle warfare training in N Queensland. I recall him mentioning in passing that his unit also trained in the Northern Territory (Arnhem Land). Someone very familiar with the archival record relating to the Tarakan assault has expressed doubt
regarding the Arnhem Land training connection. My underlying curiosity is with the interaction between 2nd AIF personnel and local indigenous people (of which there is ample evidence) - whether in the NT or Far North Queensland. Any assistance you can provide as to source material (I have amassed a large collection over the past 50 years), will be much appreciated.
