Relations with the American servicemen are mentioned. Attitudes to women in the war- both civilian and servicewomen are discussed- servicewomen were well thought of. Mrs Adam- Smith comments on women having to give up work at the end of the war. There was no organisation for civilian women, like the ex-service women for after the war.

She remarks that since General Macarthur was running the war here, this put Prime Minister John Curtin and General Blamey into difficult positions.
