"WEAR THE KING'S KHAKI." [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 5 February 1916
"WEAR THE KING'S KHAKI." "Come with me, men, and I will show you a game better than all the football matches ever you saw; a thousand times better than all the fights you may have seen at the Stadium, because you will be able to take part in it, and that is what every true Australian glories in. It is all very well for people to say that Australia is safe; Australia is not safe. She is only in the posi tion she is to-day because of the British flag, and the part the Navy has played. If England should lose in this great struggle, where will we be? The fact that Germany has since the beginning of the war in creased her territory and population by nearly 50 per cent. should be shfficient for you to realise that we have-not won the -var. Those whom you have sent away are not fighting for fighting sake-they are fighting for you young ihen who remain at home. We want you.. Will you come? I know the urgency, and do not hesitate to ask you .to put 'on the finest clothes ever worn- the King'...
