My father who served with the QOR of C in WW2 was one of those who volunteered for service in the Pacific theater when the war in Europe was finished. However, he volunteered after the conflict in Europe was over simply because anyone who did was offered a 3 month leave at home and as stated by Mr. Storey were sent home before the others. He came home in mid to late June 45 where as the rest of the Regiment I believe came home in late fall of 45. However,Dad did not do this to seek further adventure but to be with my mother and me whom he had not seen in over 5 years. As we all know the war in the Pacific ended in early August and as my dad later stated it was a gamble he took which it paid off. Thanks for bringing back another memory of my dad and his dinner time table talks about the good and bad times serving overseas during WW2. This was one of the good ones!
