Historians say that as an empire or a nation matures, wealth and good times soften the warrior class and enemies take advantage. That certainly didn’t happen to Australia’s Diggers in 1941, when our army was first exposed to hard fighting, death and shocking injuries in WWII.

Anyone studying paintings or photographs of the time will discover a spirit in the Digger that overcame all hardship. There was a job to do, so they just got out there and “did it”. Small wonder that ANZAC tradition flowered, and bore fruit again in recent times…
