Private John ‘Barney’ Hines

Is Australia's most famous soldier a Scouser?

That was a great read Barbie,I enjoyed it . Ive never heard of Barnie , I reckon The Stories of his escapades have been exagerated somewhat by the Aussies cos by the sound of that article he almost won the war singlehandedly  Laughing

He'd have done good in Colditz!  Laughing

Also never heard of him,but there's plenty about him on the net! Sounded a real character,and a great fighter,but sadly,lies in an unmarked grave!
