Dedication: I Dedicate This Book to the Diggers of the A.I.F.
Author's note: 'It is a pleasure for me to express here my appreciation of the assistance given me by Hugh Buggy in the writing of this book. Without his sympathetic encouragement, advice, and literary assistance, it would never have been written. Should the reader enjoy the story, I shall be repaid tenfold in the vindication of my judgment in selecting, and being fortunate enough to secure, the assistance and co-operation of my friend.'
Foreword by Lieutenant Colonel G.F. Murphy.
