Guadalcanal Battle Sites
1942 - 2012
Welcome to my web page, where you can accompany me on my visits to the Guadalcanal battlefields during 1995 - 2012.
I live in Melbourne, Australia and have been into history since I was a kid. During 1995 -2012 I have made 9 trips to explore the Guadalcanal land battlefields. My next trip will be in July 2013.
