A group of veterans has returned to Darwin after revisiting battle grounds in East Timor where they fought in World War 2.

The men of Operation Sparrow Force were few in number, but successfully delayed the advance of more than 20,000 Japanese troops towards Australia in 1942.

This trip marks the 70th anniversary of Australia's engagement in World War 2 on the island.

Stephanie March reports from Dili.
