Editor's note: 'A spirit of adventure and a keen desire to travel,' observes Jan Bassett in her study of Australian Army nursing Guns and Brooches (1992), was 'just as important as imperial loyalty in motivating many of the nurses to go to South Africa'. Julia Anderson was one of ten nurses who sailed on the Euryalus with the Third (Bushmen's) Contingent in March 1900. Anderson published this portrait of her African experiences in Una, the journal of the Victorian Trained Nurses' Association.

From the Sudan in 1885 to Afghanistan in 2001, the connection of war to travel is illustrated by writers and reveals how the experience of war has both broadened and refined (and sometimes distorted) Australian views of the world.'
