Les Knox's interview in Narrabri

Les Knox shares stories of his Grandfather John Knox, who served in World War 2. Les is very proud of his grandfather’s service, but only discovered it about 10-15 years ago and Les and his family are continuing to research John Knox’s service. Les goes on to speak about his cousin Bluey Lang, who also served and was a passionate advocate for wider recognition of aboriginal service.
