    Black and White in the A.I.F.
    Dear "Non-Com."-Re aborigines in the A.I.P. The accompanying photograph was taken in Wareham (Dorset) in December, 1916.
    The tall chap in the centre, standing, by name George Carpanay, of the 10th Battalion, was, to judge by appearances, a full-blooded native. Naturally, one did not ask questions, but that was the general opinion of those who knew him. The shorter coloured man, Wilson, also of the 10th Battalion, was obviously a half caste. They were both well educated, jolly fine fellows and "white clear white, inside." The other diggers are: Standing. Conway, of the 14th Battalion, and seated, "Patsy" Burke, an original member of the 9th Battalion, one of the hardest of "hard-doers," but one of those who would break his last "fag" in two to share it with a cobber.
