Complete Short Story AT HIS SERVICE [Newspaper Article] — Army News — 2 November 1941
Complete Short Story AT HIS SERVICE by F. Keston Clarke Mr. Milfield surveyed a clean-shaven, parchment skinned face. It was wrinkled, but not too badly; and there was enough iron-grey hair at the top and sides to give it dignity. The eyes were level and keen. He turned away from the mirror and began putting on his well-kept es dress clothes, for this was early in a 1939. es As he did so, Mr. Milfield's minid 3 projected itself forward half an r hour. There was Raffelle's, of Is course. It was a couple of years tl since he had dlined at Raffelle's; but d, Vincent, the head waiter, would be 'n sure to have a. smile for him. There was Britzio's. Or why not the Somerset? And Mr. Milfieldl, as he left the Hotel Ruthenia for his expedition, reflected with some amusement that if he wanted, the smartest place in town, he was prob ably coming away from it. IFifteen minutes later he was sit ting contentedly at a secluded table in the Restaurant Capulet studying the menu. -0 He looked up. The...

Signaller Sails Alone From Crete To Libya VIVID STORY OF RETIMO FIGHTING [Newspaper Article] — Army News — 6 November 1941
Signaller Sails Aione From Crete To Liby VIVID STORY OF RETIMO FIGHTING (From Department of Information) At Retimo (Crete) towards the end of April, a handful of Australians held an aerodrome. Poorly armed, and with little hope of reinforcement, they fought against the German suicide "paratroops" who, in their hundreds dropped in front of the defenders, behind them, and intheir midst. With sublime confidence and courage, these Australians met the attack, using Italian field guns, captured German tommy-guns and enemy ammunition until, still fighting, they learnt that the battle of Crete had been lost. They did not surrender. They pre ferred to risk death in the hills or on the sea, to the fate of German prison camps. This is the story, just received by Army Minister (Mr. Forde), from General Sir Thomas Blamey, of Signaller S. H. Carroll (A.I.F.), who, single-handed, sailed a tiny boat to the north African coast from' Crete. "SKY WAS FULL OF THEM -- ALL COLORS" The story begins at Ret...
