Eleanor Jane MELLER , 1920–2014 (aged 94 years)
Recalling her earlier life, Eleanor has written:
"I started school at Liverpool at 5 years. In the same class was a boy Arthur. Our families became friends. We grew up through the depression years. Arthur joined the permanent army in 1938 and went to Queenscliffe in Victoria for training. He came home for Christmas and we became engaged. He had to go back as an instructor which we didn't like. It was a letter to each other every day. I went down to Queenscliffe and we were married there, six months before the war started. We moved around a lot. Arthur became a major in 1969 and retired in 1974.
