He was always interested to tell the history of the Coastwatchers, the forerunner of M Special Unit, because their secretive and specialist operations were ‘hush hush’ during the war and unknown until many years later. Jim decided to publish the story, including some of his experiences during the war, so that the vital role that Coastwatchers played in winning the war in the Pacific was not lost to posterity. A member of the Australian Commando Association Victoria, Jim gave a compelling address as the speaker at the 2015 Tidal River memorial service, where he also spoke of the origins of the WW2 Commando units. Jim has tremendous knowledge of the Coastwatcher operations in the South pacific area, and of the many tragic incidents that were part of the toll in the war against the Japanese. Jim believes he may be the last Coastwatcher around to tell the history of his organization. See thelastcoastwatcher.wordpress.com. Readers are also welcome to contact Jim by email, jim@starbiz.com.
