Les Arnel was the last remaining South Australian from world war II’s legendary 39th Battalion. He was one of the first Australians to confront the Japanese on the Kokoda Trace and his death in an Adelaide nursing home on the weekend means there are no more south Australians remaining from a legendary World War II Battalion. His funeral will be at 2 pm on Saturday at Modbury Church of Christ.
