"WHAT ABOUT IT, JACK?", Service Stories, Album Contents
Those were the Days!
The following album contains extracts from edited by a journalist only known by the sobriquet of "Non Com.". Each week, his Red Page, page 2 appeared in the Western Mail every Thursday during 1933. From these contributions, authentic stories of the Australian experience during the Boer War and Great War have been extracted. Each article has been presented at a specific photographic entry with a transcription of the story following afterwards. In addition, where it was felt necessary, articles have had explanatory notes attached to them so to place them into context and make them more intelligible to the reader. Some have required extensive amounts of additional information while other items stand alone since they were just yarns told and retold like urban legends. All the items add something to our understanding of the men involved in the conflicts, both Boer War and Great War.
The articlers were extracted from Western Mail, 1933, p. 2.
