"One time his captain gave him his saddle to polish and dad put black shoe polish on it instead.
"The captain wasn't amused. He could've got a Victoria Cross Medal if he behaved better."
That is just one of the many stories Judy Tuckey had about her "mischievous" father, who served and survived World War One and World War Two.
Lying about his age to join the army, 18-year-old Zebulun Green found himself at Gallipoli in the notorious Battle of the Nek.
He was in the third wave to charge at approximately 30 machine guns. Hundreds of his comrades fell that day but Mr Green was one of the lucky ones to come through it unscathed.
Returning to Australia in 1919, Mr Green settled down in Carnamah, where he had six children including Judy who along with her twin was the youngest of the family.
"My dad said 'I went to sleep with four children and woke up with six'," Ms Tuckey recalled.
"I was dad's favourite child. I adored my father."
To not be deemed medically unfit, Mr Green once again lied about his age to enlist in World War Two.
"He used to wear three dog tags in the war when you would normally just wear one," Ms Tuckey said.
"It lists your details and religion.
"The reason he wore three was because he wore one Roman Catholic for his mum, Seventh Adventist for his wife, and he considered himself a Bush Baptist."
After serving in the UK and Middle East, Mr Green aged out and was discharged in 1941. But only eight days later he signed up to join the Reserves.
It was in Queensland where Mr Green's luck unfortunately ran out.
"He was in Queensland helping direct transport trucks and while he was directing one truck another one backed into him and squashed his chest," Ms Tuckey said.
"So he survives two wars then goes to Queensland waiting for demobilisation and doesn't make it home.
"I was only 13 when he passed away."
Sadly it was only two years later when Ms Tuckey's brother, Rex was in a plane crash on a flight back to Darwin and was never found.
"My brother was supposed to be home for Christmas," she said.
"After losing dad it was awful. Mum was inconsolable because it was her favourite boy."
Now many decades since her beloved father's passing, Ms Tuckey has his war medals to remember him by.
She was particularly proud of his Military Medal he received for "great bravery on several occasions during operations in Jordan".
