The Aussie Who Saved JFK — Part Two

WWII Aussie coastwatcher Reg Evans rescued John F. Kennedy in the Pacific in 1943 but his world-changing role in history would be left out of media articles and campaign propaganda that sought to emphasise Jack’s war heroism. It wasn’t until a little Sydney magazine started digging some 17 years later that the truth about the man who’d saved the life of the 35th President of the United States began to emerge. This is the conclusion and it's a story of wartime bravery, alleged Nazi spies, West African riots, men's magazines, TV game shows and Hollywood movie deals — with... of course... a cameo by Betty White.
