SEVENTY Five years ago today an RAAF Hudson bomber carrying a large chunk of the Menzies Cabinet and the Australian High Command crashed into a hill overlooking Canberra airport with no survivors.

The War Memorial has a page on today’s commemoration which will include a last post in honour of General Sir Cyril Brudenell Bingham White, Chief of the General Staff.
