* Warning: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander readers are advised that deceased people are represented throughout this publication. *
The inaugural Royal Australian Air Force Oral Histories series publication, First Nations Aviators, will introduce you to a number of First Nations People who have proudly served the Air Force, in various capacities, from the Second World War through to today. Albeit brief, their stories are particularly inspirational considering the discrimination that occurred on enlistment, and their treatment after separating from the Armed Services, at that time. Their stories should help to reveal and acknowledge those First Nations People for the heroes that they are and the recognition that their families are due.
First Nations Aviators provides the perfect backdrop to introduce this series as we start with ‘First Nations People’, the very people who have already been protecting Australia and its interests for more than sixty thousand years!
Part of the Australian Air Campaign Series - 4.
