In 1907, John Dalley 'became a sub-editor on the Bulletin and was a leader-writer from 1911. He contributed short stories, articles and verse, and was a superb writer of paragraphs, capturing the apparent ease of composition, pungency and ironic flippancy that characterized the Bulletin's style'. During World War I, Dalley served in the 2nd Divisional Ammunition Column (1915), the 9th Field Artillery Brigade and 1st to 8th Reinforcements (May 1916 - February 1917).
