George Snow

"we landed there... guns firing in all directions"

A WWII veteran, he fought far away but found his love close to home

George recalls his life, his friends and his cricket in Wentworthville in western Sydney in the 1920s and 1930s.

He left school at 15 to work for Murray Bros, Parramatta, where he remained for 43 years.

He didn’t have to go far to find the love of his life. He wed a Westmead girl during the War and they were together for 66 years.

In WWII, George fought for the Australian Army on Tarakan Island in Borneo. He was a sergeant in an artillery unit. He recalls the joy of having white sheets and pillows on his voyage home.
