Meet the Author | Darryl Bishop

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

Miles local Darryl Bishop welcomes you to the launch of his first book, which tells his story as an Australian Digger serving during the Vietnam War.

“Nineteen-year-old Darryl Bishop was away droving when his birth-date was drawn from the Tenth National Service Ballot, 1969. On 13th May 1971, Private Bishop departed Australia on HMAS Syndey, having earned his place in the Fourth Royal Australian Regiment (4RAR)’s Second Tour of southern Vietnam via gruelling training regimes at Kapooka, Canungra, and Townsville.”

Darryl Bishop is a stockman. He is a jack of all trades who laughingly says he is a master of none. Apart from the short time spent in Sydney, 8 months in Townsville and the time he was away in Vietnam, he has lived all his life west of the Great Dividing Ranges.
