Sound Audio Files Tokyo Rose WW2
I came across thes web site some time ago. And one of interests is the voice of Tokyo Rose. Making a broadcast in 1944. The web site also includes a Audio file of Armed Forces Radio as well. Thought some maybe interested in listening to the Audio files. Also has Audio Files of Royal Australian Regiments (RAR) and a mixed areas of Australian Songs sung during WW1 and WW2 and current songs. In further looking through web site on pages 2 and 3 one will find posters and book covers from WW1 and WW2
Audio; The Ode; Finest Hour, Tokyo Rose, marches & music
hope you find it interesting as I did. And Aussies if you scroll down the page to an audio file called 21 guns its a must listen to. A tribute to the Light Horse. Nearly cried listening to it. Filled me with pride in being an Aussie. Some British songs as well from Vera Lynn during WW2. Last Post and the Rouse also on audio file very interesting web site

Great site that Emac. I use it all the time.
Thanks Thor glad to help and yes Wild its a good site blew me away most of Wednesday afternoon. Wild I remember when I first started in QR at a place called TNG Electrical section. There were posters up on the workshop walls dating back to WW2. These were original posters and had been there for over 40 years at the time. Such things about Railway men not mentioning troop and train movements etc. Other propaganda posters of the time during WW2 etc. I would have dearly loved to have scored them. No idea what became of them after I moved on. Possibley they were eventually got taken down and burned with other rubbish when the workshop got remodelled some time ago. Bit of a pity
