Australia Meal fa By(^t.tKeHon.HiigK; Gros'venor - : ?' YOU/ask me what I think of flying in , Australia.: The answer can be given jn one word— ideal!

PREVENTING AND FIGHTING BUSH FIRES [Newspaper Article] — The Register News-Pictorial — 8 January 1929
PREVENTING AND fIGHTINq : BUSHHRES - : Midsummer, as usual, threatens .the Australian' countryside with the ravages af bush fires. Alarming accounts- of ih'e' devastation wrought in several States during the . past few weeks are a sharp reminder of this seasonal peril. Hardly a summer passes without Uking its toll in ruined homes and blackened areas, 'and it is' a melancholy reflection tHat moist of* the desolation wrought by fire could have been .avoided by the observance of reasonable precautions. The discovery of the origin of a bush fire is 'usually impossible. Some out breaks may arise' from an unhappy chance, but: ;a; ttrge proportion. of tie fires which, periodically sweep the rural districts, .destroying .homes . and the means -of livelihood and* endangering life, are caused by thoughtlessness and neglect. At this season of the year the careless camper and the reckless smoker! are . more than ever a menace to Ui ? country. One match is suffi cient to set a whole district abl...
