AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A patriotic acknowledgement of the traditions that bind Australia with England, extending beyond imperialist trade relations to a combined war effort against the 'demagogue, the tyrant, and the slave'. The poem concludes by honouring the Australian 'sons' who have joined the war effort despite intra-government dissent about Australian involvement.
