I was amazed with Gary’s level of knowledge but more than that, I was inspired by his passion and his personal connection to the bombing of Darwin. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend it to all.

Gary brought to life the experience of people in the initial bombing of Darwin and what really happened. The tour was very interesting and well worth undertaking.

I was just a tourist on the tour so I can't answer your question. Though I'm not sure (you will have to confirm with the tour operator) I believe he said he does special tours for veterans.
