The Register (Adelaide, SA: 1901 - 1929) Thursday 20 December 1917


Thomas Dullea, of Saddleworth, who has  spent six months in Egypt, and 18 months in France, writing from the latter country, says: — "It seems to me that Russia will have to cease work to put her own house in order. If that is so, may the gods be kind to us. Most men fight well— they know it is about as safe to fight as it is to run, so it comes to the question which of the rival   nations will back their armies the longest. The war   has been going on so long, and we have lost so   many men that I hope our people will stick it   out, even if the casualty lists grow longer and longer every day. The Irishmen in Ireland may   not have much to fight for, but Australians have   a lot to lose. We have been piping tunes for Norman Lindsay's war god, and my first break has been three days in bed. We have given and taken some horrible music during the year, but never before have we had to face the music like this. It is good to know that there are people left in   Australia who survive to keep the mule-headed   majority moving, and to make them lend a hand   in this business to make Australia safer for our   folks at home, and for those who come after us." Three of Bbbr. Dullea's brother have been killed in action during the last 16 months. (
