Gus Hales on Buddhism

Gus Hales served with 9 PARA RE and fought alongside 3 PARA on Longdon.

The Battle for Mount Longdon

During the pilgrimage in 2007 Gus will always be remembered for his actions during the rememberance service held in Stanley cathedral when he walked to the front and totally off his own back read a poem he had written. His thoughts echoed those of many veterans and received thunderous applause as what he had to say really hit the mark, unlike the padre who gave the sermon, whose words went over most peoples head including mine.

Well done Gus.

I would like to contact Gus Hales by direct email. My own address is

PS: My ID shown here starts with 'word': It SHOULD be 'world', but I don't know how to correct it.
