This is a early wartime photo of my grandfather, Major Hedley John Freedman. He fought in World War 2 with the 2/28 Australian Infantry Battalion in Tobruk (yep, he was a ‘rat’), Alemein, Syria and New Guinea. He was ‘awarded’ M.I.D (Mentioned in Dispatches) twice. He survived the war, and passed in 1979, a few weeks before the birth of my sister.
