  • Details
Lest we forget! This book offers an overview of the contributions made by Indigenous Australians to Australia's Defence Forces. Starting with the Boer War (1899–1902), they have been involved in every major conflict Australia has faced. The actual numbers have been sadly missed as Aborigines, in many cases, enlisted as Spanish, Indians and other nationalities due to racial restrictions. The likely number for World War I is 500, and for World War II it was probably over 5000.

Aboriginals were used in the Boer War as trackers, and in later wars they ranged from horsemen to infantry personnel. In World War II the range increased to commandos in coastwatch teams behind Japanese lines, and many other roles. Aboriginal ANZACs were a proud and significant group who, through their tenacity, and physical and mental skills, were able to play a significant role in Australia's war efforts. Vietnam and Middle East wars saw further involvement in all parts of the services. The stories are sad for some, proud for most, and full of hope for a people to endure from racial and material adversity.

This book focuses on the continuing involvement of Aboriginals in Australia's Defence Forces, offering information, exercises, internet research, group activities and much more.
