Joe Mocki sent to us by DeWitt.  He is another BJWS graduate - and his class was  with Barry Magor's 8 RAR who were the Australian Trackers.  (We first heard about Joe when we were communicating with Barry in Australia and from his recollections, were able to find Joe alive and well and living in Connecticut! They are now in touch after 32 years!)
