U-series. Greetings from Egypt. Bill Miller
Loading the player...
Mobile Unit broadcaster Doug Laurenson [Military Service no. 34957] introduces a greeting from Bill Miller [Military Service no.7043] of Remuera, Auckland.
He doesn't mention his requested song in the first cut, so a second greeting is recorded, with his request for "Popeye", for his children John and Jennifer.
This item is part of a collection of recordings made by the Mobile Broadcasting Units, which travelled overseas with New Zealand forces between 1940-1945. They recorded New Zealanders' experiences of war and messages to their families and friends, which were sent back home to be played on a weekly radio programme.
