Pressing Czechoslovakian Princess work and a bit of SBS television commitments this morning - back soon
UPDATED You can lead the lady to Kevlar Kev, but you can't mess up her hair or her hijab.

Sir John and Lady Gorton visited our diggers in the Vietnam war-zone, Lady Gorton or Betty was a "First Lady" in so many ways as her grandson Ben remembers.

Yesterday we were among many Australians who tried to correct the ABC and others who misreported Australia's "First Lady" visiting our diggers in a war zone.

Ben Gorton, grandson of Sir John and Lady Gorton (or John and Betty as he fondly remembers them) wrote in to our site and let us know how he felt.

Today it's been my privilege to speak with Ben about family, duty and Australia.

Sir john and lady gorton
