Welcome to Catalogue 215 . Australia Day 2019 has come and gone with all the attendant celebrations along with a fair share of bleating and chest beating. It’s a shame that the time and energy spent disputing a date can derail us from the real job at hand and that is giving our indigenous brothers a hand up. I’d rather we spent our energies in helping with education, health and general medical aspects than following the call of inner city elites stirring the possum and solves none of the big issues. I love this country and expect all of us to do likewise. It’s seems to be the established people of generally Anglo-Celtic origin who seem to be the main stirrers. Without naming any particular party, we could be in big strife in the near future if cards fall a particular way. But what has all this to do with selling and buying books you may ask? Well, the thing is, people’s minds are distracted from our military history which is not being taught in schools anymore. A good example of this is the teacher who announced to her class that an honoured guest, a veteran of ‘World War Eleven’ (WW11) was here to speak to the class. The veteran promptly stood up and walked out of the class room. It’s a worry that the kids have little hope in learning anything when their teacher know so little. This list contains many old standards but also quite a lot of ‘never-before-listed’ titles.
