Military Historical Society, 1985, Softcover, Book Condition: Good, Unstated
"This book is about the first occasion on which Australians as an organised force went overseas, joining the British army in military operations. The contingent came from New Souls Wales, the oldest of the colonies compromising Australia at that time. They went to the Sudan & joined the Suakin Field Force which was to avenge the tragic death of Major General Gordon at Khartoum. This must have seemed very far from Australia in the transports of those days, but it was a contribution to the efforts of the Empire which in return might ensure help from the Empire if the need should ever arise in Australia..." - Admiral Sir Anthony Synnot All pictures shown are of the actual product offered for sale Stapled Card Covers.
