Lloyd Birdsall: "If I had my time over, I'd do it all again"

Joseph Paterson DOB 30 September 1920

 

 

A Century in the making

A huge congratulations to one of our WWII Veteran Members, Joseph Paterson for reaching his 100 birthday. I went around to the residence of Joe’s daughter, Michelle, to pass on a little gift from all Subbranch members.

The gift in the photo shows a slouch hat resting on army boots.  This we thought is a fitting tribute as Joe was a member of the 2nd AIF.

 

This should give Joe something to admire for many years to come while in his nursing home.
