Can anyone remember the war drama on Tv possibly the 70s about an Australian family before during and after the war?.....I can't remember it for the life of me. I don't think it was Family at war because I think that was English....wasn't it?

The eldest wanted to be a Doctor and he wanted to continue his training, his dad wanted him to go to war and fight like he did, he married a german girl from the corner shop as I remember, and we all remember Mrs Gossip from next door

Thats her Carolee Mrs Jessup, she had a married couple as lodgers in the earlier series the husband was a bit of a spriv and womaniser.

The Mother Sullivan had one fo them happy faces that smiled when she spoke, such a cheerful smile.
