I rather like the comment in the foreword about the levelling effect of writing as a common interest.

No matter your rank, occupation or background everyone is equal.

It's a fact that still rings true today.

There are plenty of copies of 'Under the Atebrin Moon' around. You'll pay about $40 for one on eBay.

It came out as a hardback and most copies available still have the dust jacket.

The Australian army produced quite a few anthologies of its own during the war that included short stories, poetry and artwork.

There were also private publications too. I've got a copy of 'Pacific Pictorial: A Souvenir Collection of Pictorial gems from New Guinea and the South Pacific' which is just a simple black and white 20 odd pages small soft cover magazine.

And Keith, Berkelouws is just up the road from you at Eumundi. It's chockablock with second hand books.

I met the good Berkelouw himself a couple of weeks ago, in Venice as it happened, and we had a good yarn. He's third generation in the business (imported from the Netherlands by his dad). He's getting on and he fears he may be the last (I forgot about Eumundi!) - KJ
