Welcome to Catalogue #207 April 2018. Apologies for missing my March list but we were a little distracted here at Malone command central with weddings (this time Sydney) and various other activities – cricket notwithstanding.  The first days of April bring with it the first cool evenings of autumn and preparation for Anzac Day – the one day of the year.  This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Villers-Bretonneux and brings back memories of our own trip to the Western Front in 2008 for the first dawn service at Villers-Bretonneux with the Villers-Bretonneux Cross and choir from St George’s Cathedral in Perth – seems like yesterday!

Many unit histories of WW1, WW2 and Vietnam are listed along with a section on ‘the Boer War’. Some of these titles (such as the 1st ed Murray’s) are now very scarce. As usual I dedicate this list to soldiers on Active Service and past diggers who may not be travelling very well. Don’t forget, we are only a phone call away if assistance is required. Look after your family and mates, they’re the real elements of life. Via con Dios
