feature of “ The Stock and Station Journal” since the beginning of the war. The widespread interest they have excited among our subscribers has induced us to give them a more permanent form and a wider distribution than is possible in the pages of a newspaper. These Cartoons are published in the certainty that they will be treasured as a pertinent comment on the progress of the war from the Australian point of view, as well as a unique collection of work by a popular draftsman in a line which he has, so far, seldom exploited.

From the hills beyond Menindie and from One-Tree Sidin', From the high lands of Monaro there are brave men ridin' ; With a rifle slung behind them and their bridle swingin' free— Oh, the rally to the Flag is a fine thing to see.

God be with you where you’re going ;

It's a long, long road you take,

To fight a fight for freedom and the right,

For your King and your Country's sake ;

The five-starred Flag you'll keep flyin'

Till the long campaign is done,

For just like any other,

Australia is a mother That is proud of her soldier son.

In the factory and the office there are lots of empty places,

And out where we are livin' we are missin' friendly faces ; There are twenty thousand of you marching proudly to the Quay-Oh, the rally to the Flag is a fine thing to see.

God be with you on the battle day,

For we want you back again,

Though o'er the sea our hearts will ever be With our own Australian men.

God be with you till we meet again,

With the battle fought and won,

For just like any other,

Australia is a mother That is proud of her soldier son.
