The sailors of the Australian Naval and Military Expeditionary Force to German New Guinea in 1914 made an indelible mark on Australia’s rich military history during World War One.

They were the first Australians to fight and die in the conflict. They conducted the first bayonet charge and won the first gallantry decorations. Now, the story of these unique Bluejackets can be told and they can at last be identified by name. N.C. Smith 2016. With detailed Nominal Roll. 68 pages with glossy colour cover, saddled stitched. Posted price AUD28.00.
