Holding On At Trobruk [Newspaper Article] — Army News — 26 October 1941

Holding On At Trobruk (By Ronald Monson, Sydney, Telegraph correspondent.) TOBRUK.--After more than six months "The Rats of Tobruk" are still in unassailable, possession of every square mile of that sun-baked grey rock. Torbuk's defenders don't mind German radio propogandists des- tription of them as rats. They hold every ravine within a 35-mile perimeter enclosing the de- fence area of the town. Every night they are gnawing deeply into the enemy's: vitals, and their teeth are sharp.   Men of Tobruk fought like cor- nered rats when the enemy thought he had them cornered, and they cer- taitlyv live in holes in the ground. They cunningly, avoid the enemys traps. But the enemy holding ridges be- yond the perimeter knows there is nothing ratlike. about the fighting men who, in, the darkness, assault his posts with hails of hot steel and with bayonets, to rip him from his strongposts. These veterans are grim efficient Australian soldiers and their British comrades. Just rece...

SPECIAL MESSAGE FOR ALL TROOPS [Newspaper Article] — Army News — 26 October 1941

SPECIA.L IMESSAGE FOR ALL TROOPS Brigadier. Lind (A.I.F.) wishes to convey this message to men stationed in the Darwin area. Accurate presentation of world news to members of a community is a necessary corollary to modern edu-   cation. Essential at all times, it is the more imperative at the present, when the fate of our .Empire-its liberty and its privileges-together with the future of civilisation, are set in the"balance against a counter- poise, which threatens to be over- whelming, of organised lust for blood and for world domination, ex- hibited by a nation-as ruthless as it is unchristian. The set of the scales in our favor can only, and will only, be deter- mined by ultimate willingness for in- dividual service, and for individual sacrifice, on the part of every citizen of the British. Empire. The three services-the Navy, the Army and of the Air-on whose efficient, co-operative, effort the im- mediate future of our Empire lies, are all represented in this area-t...

"EXPEDITION WOULD BE SUICIDE" Firm Reply to Invasionists Lord Gort's Frank Dispatches. [Newspaper Article] — Army News — 26 October 1941

"EXPEDITION WOULD BE SUICIDE" Firm Reply to Invasionists   Lord Gort's Frank Dispatches. LONDON, The Colonial Secretary, Lord Moyne, in a statement in the House of Lords today, made it clear that a large scale British offensive on the Western Front, fowards relieving the pressure on the Russians was virtually impossible at present. Lord Moyne, as the Government's spokesman in the House of Lords, was clearly reflecting War Cabinet policy, based on the advice of the General Staff. This was not the first occasion on which this delicate question of high strategy has been discussed recently by Government spokesmen, but Lord Moyne to-day was perhaps more forthright on the subject even than Mr. Churchill. He emphasised equipment, and shippinig limitations, and said bluntly that to improvise an expedition would be madness, and would be commiting suicide on the enemy's doorstep. LORD GORT'S WARNING Lord Moyne, in reply, referred to the warning in Lord Gort's dis- patches, which ...
