When looking at The squadran pilot profile in a dynamic campaign for the RNZAF, my fellow pilots are all Australian born. I think this needs to change.

Thats funy, when I look at lists of famous Australian entertainers/musicians they're all New Zealand born! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Remember a lot of your young men heard the call and went off to fly in RAF uniforms.

I guess their parents got sick of blowflys and dust and went in search of greener pastures.

As a page from my personal family history, my one of grand fathers went from Britain to NZ and then to Australia following the gold. There was quite a bit of movement in those days.


When SOW comes out you should be happy in the knowledge that alot of the best British aces were Kiwi's!

There's a file called "Australia" in the Dgen folder. You can edit the place names in there as you wish.

Yeah your right. It makes me think of what Muldoon,(prime minister of the time,) said back in the seventies when this question was put to him. " thats all right it raises the average IQ of both countries" A bit harsh but bloody funny.

I was working in the Melbourne CBD during the early 90's.

While I was there someone climbed up on to the roof of the central law courts and replaced the Australian Flag with a NewZealand flag as a Joke. We had a fairly good view of the courts.

It took them about 3 months to realise and put the right one back up.

It was an office joke for quite some time.

Yeah man, just trying to think of a couple. Didn't James Ward get a VC for an act of heroism on the wing of a bomber?? Or something?
It amazes me, in those days, what those youngsters got up to, red green blue or yellow, in the name of survival...
