Notes

  • Dedication: For my uncle John Payne.
    In war - a true hero of the sea.
    In peace - always there for me.
  • Epigraph: The wallaroos grope through the tufts of grass,
    And turn to their coverts for fear:
    But he sits in the ashes and lets them pass
    Where the Boomerang sleeps with the spear:
    With the nullah, the sling, and the spear. - The Last of His Tribe, Henry Kendall.
