Details

Fuzzy Wuzzy Angel

During World War II, American troops along with the Australian troops had a battle against the Japanese troops at the Kokoda Trail.
Fuzzy Wuzzy was a member of the Australian troops. He was a brave man and did not care about being shot by the Japanese troops. But he continued to fight against the Japanese troops up until the poisonous chemicals from the exploded bomb spoiled his eye. When the chemicals from the exploded bomb spoiled his eye, a local man from Kokoda helped bring him to the Australian camp. From the camp, the Australian took Fuzzy Wuzzy, his local guide to Australia by a jet fighter.

As told by Joseph Kandimbu, 2015

This occured in 1942 and the name of the Australian soldier was Private George Whittington and his Fuzzy Wuzzy Rescuer was Raphael Oimbari.
