Reveille - August 31, 1931 - AIF Aborigines : How Many?

I was going through some Reveille magazines that were inherited when my grandmother died years ago. The article titled A.I.F Aborigines : How Many appeared in the issue of August 31, 1931. A link to a copy of the article is here.

A second article titled Lever on Britain : Prisioners Suffer appeared in the December 31, 1931 issue of Reveille and refers to Douglas Grant. The article is available here.

VICNET May 2012

 

This was the VICNET Home page in May 2012 just before the change over.

I vaguely remember 45053 refers to the number of times the site was accessed and not the number of times pages were accessed.

Just placed here for historical reasons.
