Ann Sibosado's interview in Port Hedland

Ann Sibosado talks about her experience growing up as the child of a World War 2 veteran, Albert Lockyer. Albert was one of five brothers who went to war, and one of the three who returned. The family didn’t receive any benefits or assistance and Ann discusses her difficult childhood, her feelings about war, and how it has particularly affected Aboriginal families in Australia.

This interview took place on 4 September 2015 in Port Hedland and was conducted by Professor Mick Dodson with Craig Greene as part of the Australian Research Council-funded research project Serving our Country: a history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the defence of Australia.
