Volume 8 Issue 6

In this issue

For the lads in the first convoys of WWI, to leave Australia, the “big adventure” was going to be over by Christmas and they were heading straight for France. Or so they thought. Fate intervened, however. There were long delays in Egypt, and then they were diverted to Gallipoli. This was their first encounter with the realities of war – and it was hellish. When that attack failed, those who were left were scent to flight in the trenches of Europe. That was when they learned what real hell was like. Gas attack was the ultimate horror.
