My beginning as a legally recognized individual occurred on June 13, 1980 in Melbourne. Of course I cannot consciously remember anything from the very first 2 or 3 years of my life after birth. (And, also, one suspects, psychologically, that this earliest memories are becoming "memories of memories" and they are equivalent to traditional folk tales transferred by tellers and listeners from one generation to another.) But truth is available when direct memory fails for many circumstances.
My Dad, from whom I was named, was an electrical engineer and had come to Melbourne to dedicate himself to the electrical utility company. He was obviously a veteran of WW2 and had served as a lieutenant in the supply services and consequently had not been in actual front lines combat in the war.
