David Birt

This week we caught up with Mr David Birt. A former Veteran, I was told he has a plaque from the French Government thanking David for his service. “It’s been quite an exciting life I’ve lived, I often think about it and think it has been great.”

“The year after the war I was a finalist in the Miss Australia Competition, it was about who raised the most money for charity. I was on the front page of the paper when I made my debut. We went out on a boat once and when we got right out the boat broke down, we had to wait for the lifesaver and swim ashore, well I didn’t wait for the lifesaver I swam myself to shore.” *laughs*
