Response to Re: swimming pool too!

I know there are some who did fight in combat. But i am speaking in general terms. Those png troops played an important part,but there are those who like to boast and say they "saved" australia. Don't get me wrong i am not trying to downplay the signifigance or importance of the PNGeans sacrifice. Every ANZAC day the australian public is reminded of the fuzzy wuzzy angels and what they did. However i find t insulting to the memory of australians who died in your lands when i hear some say "png saved australia" or a couple of weeks ago one person told me the "Aussie soldiers at kokoda were week because the kokoda trail is a stroll in the park."
