In 1970, President Nixon's war in Vietnam, and now Cambodia, was getting unpopular in the USA and Oz. We decided to take our 8th Battalion home. Westgate Bridge fell into the water and killed 35 workmen. The Queen, Prince Phillip, and two kids came to Oz. They liked it, so the Pope came later. Margaret Court, John Newcombe, Shane Gould, and Raylene Boyle all did well overseas, and made us think we were world-beaters.There were 13 million people and 180 million sheep in Oz. The Indian Pacific made its first trip across the nation.

In 1971, compulsory seat belts kept drivers in their place. Billy McMahon took over as PM, when Gorton voted against himself. Gough Whitlam, Opposition Leader, ventured to visit the Red baddies in China. Neville Bonner was the first Aboriginal in Parliament. Red unionist Jack Mundey conserved heritage buildings. Oz troops left Vietnam in time for late-night shopping in NSW and Victoria; they stopped at the first McDonalds in NSW’s Yagoona on the way home. One-day cricket came to Oz.

In 1972, it was 'Time' for a change, in Federal Government as Whitlam brought Labor back from the dead, and in our relations with China.  Number 96 won the TV credits, women got equal pay for equal work, and the call-up of Nashos ended.  Israelis were killed at the Munich Olympic Games.  Plane hijackers were being shot overseas, and car seat belts were an issue at home.
