See you there, mate!

MaxSez: The “Coral Sea”. Lost in history to most North Americans,
this fetted killing ground saw Down Under on the cusp of invasion and occupation in the last century. While the boy where away in Europe great air, sea & land battles for survival on the steaming island of this remote corner of the world saved a continent. I’ve flown this region often. I’ll see you over Mosby 12 O’clock High as a Lame Duck in a Spit if able.
Regards Mates, Max Sends


Thanks Max! The battles fought in this area will be remembered by Australians for centuries to come.
