Paul and Joan Dench
In 1994, Paul and Joan Dench each recorded their memories of Carnarvon
onto Compact Cassettes. Their recordings were discovered among the archives at Tidbinbilla.
There are touching first-hand accounts of life in Carnarvon during the Gemini and Apollo Programs.
With special thanks to Joan and Paul who have given permission to post these here.
