Soldier Boys launched at the Drill Hall


With some World War 1 era songs to put us in the mood, Max Waugh's book on Soldier Boys: the militarisation of Australian and New Zealand Schools for World War 1 was launched at the Drill Hall by RHSV President Don Garden on Tuesday 18 November. 


Afterwards the guests adjourned to the Officers' Mess upstairs and enjoyed a panel discussion with Max Waugh, Russell Robinson (author of Khaki Crims and Desperadoes), moderated by Past RHSV President Andrew Lemon. 


Soldier Boys is available at the RHSV bookshop, but Khaki Crims is not at present.
