Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels?

I heard this story on the radio initially, and i couldn't really believe what I was hearing.

"More than 60 years after they helped Australian soldiers in Papua New Guinea, the "Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels" have been officially recognised.

Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels is the name used for local civilians who provided vital help to Australian troops in Papua New Guinea during the Second World War."

What these Papua New Guinean people did to help the soldiers is awesome. They risked their own lives many times over. They were bestowed with the name, "Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels" but I wonder what name they call themselves. I am all for anyone wanting to be called whatever they want but really, fuzzy wuzzy angels? - it doesn't seem right to me.

I mean, read this, "The Australian government is inviting other Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels to come forward so they can be honoured for their great contribution."
