Sorry, no such town in Australia, and if there was (somewhere between Alice Springs and the Indian Ocean?) I doubt if they ever needed a war correspondent.
Operation Frantik was a 1943 USAF scheme to overfly and bomb Germany and refuel and re-arm in Russia. It didn't work because of Russian lack of enthusiasm. I can't imagine how an Australian war correspondent could be involved.

Kingsley, I would think having a War Correspondent on a mission like that would be a propaganda coup! Especially if it had worked out!

Just a thought?
