The booklet was published in 1986. I picked about 10 years ago it up $[sign in to see URL] at a local 2nd hand bookshop here in Newcastle - Rice's. Dave Dial would probably also know Rice's well. I have been a regular browser and buyer ther since I was 12. I dont go in there much anymore because they have reduced their military section - probably in favour of CDs and Playboys

Re: Aboriginal Soldiers


G'day there, Bryn.
I am thinking that the Scone and District Historical Society may still have copies of the book for sale. They have a web site. Failing that, Ross may be able to photocopy his copy for us.
Ross, is that a possibility?
Ross, I may give you a phone call soon to make contact.
Kindred souls stuff. (Secret men's business).

Re: Aboriginal Soldiers


A lot of time has passed since the last entries here about Aboriginal soldiers in World War One. The second edition of my book on Aboriginal WW1 servicemen was published in 2012. It identifies over 800 Indigenous men who volunteered for WW1 and attaches a reference to each name to avoid what has until recently been a continual problem - the mis-identification of white solders as Aboriginal - because of name similarities and other issues. More details about what I have to say can be seen at [sign in to see URL] I was helped in my research by both David Huggonson and Jan 'Kabarli' James. Jan's book Forever Warriors is an essential reference work for anyone interested in WW1 Western Australian Aboriginal soldiers in all conflicts. The digitisation of the service records of the first AIF by the National Archives of Australia and the ability to see these online at the NAA site is invaluable to anyone interested in WW1 and the AIF.

Re: Aboriginal Soldiers


Hi all newcomer here - I'm doing a bit of research for my Aboriginal MIL who's deceased father and brothers are shown in the photo section of Jan {Kabarli}James book Forever Warriors.

She has a query and would like to contact the author by email if possible - can anyone help with an email address??

many thanks
