The following pages are from the Orders designed to bring the Citizens Military Force (CMF) or Militia into line with the names given to the units of the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) in August 1918. Following from this, designations of the various territories applied to the Training Areas were altered. In the granting of Battle Honours in 1927, CMF units were granted honours that were awarded to the AIF unit after whom they were renamed in 1918.
These three reforms were significant in understanding the nomenclature of the time.

Would You Serve Again? Yes - For Something to Eat!
Dear "Non-Com,” - Yes; I would serve again, but you can believe me that it would be for vastly different reasons, than when I served before. This time I would serve because I would be sure of something to put on my back and something to eat. Unemployment, has bumped me from pillar to post so much that I would do anything to secure the necessaries of life. That was not the feeling that actuated all of us in 1914, but I have been sadly disillusioned since then. I wonder what all those still "over there” would think of it if they could give their opinions on the plight of their surviving comrades.
