AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The hero of this book is a young Australian, similar in some respects to boys we have all met, and the whole of his family are people we know, and appreciate. He has the ways of well-brought-up boys, and this in various directions, being by no means what the great humorist would have called a Sunday school book boy, but just as full of fun and mischief as he ought to be. The war is in the air all the time, as it could but be in an Australian household, and is brought close in a way by reason of the fact that one of the servants is a "Hun" girl, with decidedly bigoted national feelings. There are also other connections, such as a returning wounded soldier, and a good many who go away, and even the young hero has his ideas as to the relative merits of "Belgian" and "Allied" ties for his neck. Altogether one of the best of the long list of good books from the same pen.'
