a tale of Joanna Suchy in the 1970 or 80’s.
Story was that back then she assisted Fred Hanson in Poland during the Second World War.
Hanson was on leave from the Police Force and was with the RAAF.
Not sure if he was shot down or crashed in Poland and Joanna helped in his escape and he told her that if she made it to Australia after the war to look him up and he would make sure she had a job in the Police.
I believe that is why she was always with the Special Branch.
I don’t know if all this is true, but makes for a good story and was told this by one of the Instructors running the Course we were doing.
