  • Author's note: Jenolan, 1921
  • Epigraph: 'His mates went past...He returned to hug his memories on bleak park seats and on employers' door-steps, during the long search for such work as his weakened frame and battle-shocked brain could essay; and during the long days in the mountain home for consumptive ex-soldiers. Towards the end he often raved...and his ravings were like gun-flashes.'
