A PAPUAN LOVE STORY
GOUGH WHITLAM IS 90

FOREIGN LEGION INDEED

1stecourse Albert Mispel’s evocative website includes a number of contemporary pen pictures of the members of the First E Course in 1960-61. Tony Creighton [see story below], also known as ‘Dasher’, earned these remarks:

'CREIGHTON, Tony. 22. Sydney and Brisbane. Answers to The Dasher or just plain Dash. Authority on natural childbirth, psychiatry, surgery, diet, philosophy, war, foreign affairs and sport. You name it. Former enthusiastic schoolboy footballer. Now studying for his PhD. Might soon be lost to the Foreign Legion.'
