GULF WAR 1991
IMAGES OF AN AUSTRALIAN'S EXPERIENCE
by Lieutenant Commander Peter 'BONG' Nelson RAN, AFC
Nothing too fancy - merely a collection of photos that I took plus some from a fellow Commando pilot in the Royal Navy. I found myself in Kuwait amidst all that carnage...wondering what the hell I was doing there and how I'd come so far from being the Flight Commander on an Australian warship happily sailing around my own country. These photos might not be technically brilliant, but they record some of what we saw.
20 years in the Australian Navy, 4 years flying offshore and rescue choppers, then 11 years in the Australian Air Force. The latter mostly flying the venerable and mighty P-3 'Orion'. I've used too many of my 9 lives and have dome more in this life than I had any right to expect...with much more to come! Did I mention I'm an identical twin and felt it when my brother cut off his finger? What a stupid thing to do! I love life, people, sport, red wine, travel, doggies and cats...and my crazy South American wife, Griselda! She keeps me young and (in)sane...
