  • During his service in Africa Bill McIver spent time as part of the LRDG (Long Range Desert Group). This groups job was to spend time behind enemy lines destroying fuel supplies, stores and any other needed resources of the German Army. They drove Land Rovers which were equipped to do the quick 'hit and run' tasks that helped keep Rommel on the back foot as much as possible. This information was obtained by way of anecdotal stories passed on by fellow LRDG members at various ANZAC Day parades over many years.
