CHAPTER 8
The Man behind the Record

AUSTRALIA IS JUSTLY PROUD Of its war record. During the first two years of the present struggle the young Commonwealth has seen more than 200,000 of its young men enlist for service in the Army overseas and has already trained, equipped, and sent abroad more than 120,000 of those volunteers. In addition, 203,000 applied for enlistment in the Royal Australian Air Force, and 25,000 are being or have been trained for air crews, while 45,000 have been accepted for ground staff work. The personnel of the Royal Australian Navy exceeds 25,000 men, all volunteers, and in addition 50,000 men have joined up in the volunteer Home Defence Guard, for domestic duties, and 250,000 men are in the conscripted Defense Army. This is equivalent to a militia, is raised under a compulsory training law, and may not be sent abroad for duty.

This is an imposing total--595,000 men raised from a population of only about 7,500,000. But Australia's willing man power would have been of only scant use to the British Empire in its struggle for survival if the Australian Government had been forced to look to Britain for arms, for guns, for planes, and for all the rest of the vast equipment needed
