Oct 18, 2016, 11:16 AM

He was an Aboriginal stockman, turned world war two guerrilla fighter. It’s a story that reads like the plot of an action film, but it’s actually the remarkably true tale of a local from the WA Goldfields.

James Brennan was an Aboriginal stockman from Laverton whose life was shaped by battles at home and abroad.

He was born into battle between settlers and Aboriginal people in the northern Goldfields, and when world war two erupted, he enlisted to fight, where once again, it was a battle that defined the next chapter of his life.
