Geoffrey Togo's interview in Tweed Heads

Geoffrey Togo discusses his ‘Aunty Sal’, Thelma Slockee, who was a nurse in the Australian Army. Geoffrey speaks about her kind nature and her service-related health issues caused by tuberculosis but apologises for not having much detailed information on her service. Geoffrey does however emphasise the importance of Aunty Sal to his family.
