Gordon, of West Aus- tralia (a: member of the 2-31st Battalion), for conspicuous gallantry int the Syrian campaign last July.

Government May Take Over Glen Davis Oil Plant [Newspaper Article] — Army News — 2 November 1941
Government May T ake Over Glen Davis Oil Plant There is a distinct possibility that the Government will take over Glen Davis shale oil plant. Provisions of the National Security Act would enable the Gov ernment to take complete control of the plant as a wartime necessity. ,The. Supply Minister (Mr. Beas ley), shid in Canberra yesterday, that. production of shale oil at Glen Davis (N.S.W.) was only a fraction of that .expected.

TOBRUK DIGGERS BUILD MEMORIAL [Newspaper Article] — Army News — 2 November 1941
TOBRUK DIGGERS BUILD MEMORIAL From John Hetherington, Sunday Sun (Sydney) War Correspondent in the Middle East, "This is hallowed ground, for here lie those who died for their .country. At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them." I saw it first this afternoon when the dust was wihirling across To bruk's ridges from the desert, in blinding brown clouds. There is no orthodox grandeur about the cemetery. It is just three or four acres of bare, barren sand, fenced in with empty oil drums. A simple concrete memorial stands at the entrance. This memorial is about 25 feet high, and of chaste de sign, its only ornament is a cross and, below, is a marble slab bearing the words: The' memorial was built by Aus tralian and English engineering units. The graves are not standardised. Some men lie beneath earthen mounds surrounded by stones gathered from the desert, others he neath concrete slabs, still others be neath slabs faced with tiles, collected from shattered ho...

RUSSIAN TROOPS retiring along this road tricked the advancing Nazis into believing it was strongly held by making dummy soldiers with piles of sand, steel helmets, and broken rifles (left), and placing them at regular intervals in the grass on the roadside. The caption on this air-mail picture from Berlin admits that the German troops were fooled and the advance held up.
