An illustrated notebook on the life of Australians in the Middle East theatre of war. Almost all of the contents are the work of men on active service, as well as reports on most of the action in which Australian forces had taken part up until 1941. With black and white and colour illustrations as well as black and white photographs, contents include: “Little Syd”; Hitler In London; Life In The ‘Octu’; Visit To A ‘Kibbutz’; Ernie Was A Cook and many more.  There’s comical articles and musings, men interested in the exotic life around them – and poems that define the yearning for home and loved ones.
