A.I.F.'s Domestic Organisation MEN WHO KEEP THE WHEELS TURNING [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 26 April 1940
A.I.F.'s Domestic Organisation MEN WHO KEEP THE WHEELS TURNING (From Ian G. Fitchett, Acting Official Correspondent with the A.I.F. By Air Mail.) k With the complete acclimatisation of the Australian unit in Palestine the purely "domestic" organisations of each particular unit are going along smoothly. The cooks are the most publicised of the men who keep the inner wheels I moving, but there are many other r tradesmen in a unit whose work is very necessary. Let us take the case of the regi mental cobblers. Before we left Australia these jobs had been filled, but the facilities were not available for them to work continuously. How ever, this situation was rapidly dealt ( with on arrival here, and now there is a cobbler's shop in every unit. -t BUSY MEN In one I visited yesterday the bootmaker told me that he and his assistant had averaged sixteen jobs a day for the last six weeks.

German Lack Of Petrol HOME PRODUCTION IMPOSSIBLE [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 26 April 1940
German Lack Of Petrol HOME PRODUCTION. IMPOSSIBLE As the war intensifies the question of Germany's lack' of- petrol again arises. In peace time Germany used be tween 6,000,000 and 7,000,000 tons a year, but German experts have computed that in war time she would need at least between 15,000.000 and 20,000,000 tons a year. Germany's petrol production before the war was about 2,000,000 tons a year, three-quarters of which was made from coal. As it takes four Ind a half tons of coal to produce one ton of patrol, the difficulties that Germany would have to face in in creasing her petrol output become ap parent. WOULD ABSORB ALL COAL Germany has a surplus of coal - ,he produces 200,000,000 tons a year -but she must export about one quarter of her production to pay for foodstuffs and other imports. Further, to produce her full petrol 'equirements from coal would need an increase of coal production by at east 50 per cent and the complete absorption of that output. Another reason why German...
