3RAR claws its way up ice and snow clad mountain to come to grips with the enemy.
They did. Here is Pat Knowles' version.
The majority of Australians had to go to Japan or Korea, to see their very first snow and frozen streams. Actually Australians had few private refrigerators in the early 50's, most families depended on the ice-man coming a couple of times each week. For the younger readers, we bought a block of ice from him and put it in the ice-box which kept our foods and drinks tolerably cool in summer. I'm afraid ice cream didn't keep in those.
Back to the winter conditions, and Australians. Just about everyone from the northern hemisphere had experience of such weather, we on the other hand thought an occasional winter frost quite severe. Thus apart from living and fighting in the snow and ice, we had to learn to handle it mentally as well. No easy feat for those used to the hot, dry plains, or living beside the seaside all their young lives. It gave us another foe to learn about, and not an easy one to master.
