A 75 year journey
"My adventure with Hearing Australia began when I was a mere fledgling back in 1947. I was young then, too, just 21, and newly returned from the RAAF service in the Phillipines.
Luckily for me, Hearing Australia, or Commonwealth Accoustic Laboritories as it was known then, was there to help me. And now, 75 years on, it continues to keep me in touch with my family and friends and with what is going on in the world"
