No, not a single drawing of the characters today – just background story from the Soldier again. Yes, the Australians were a little rowdy in Egypt. Caused a little bit of havoc when they wandered through Cairo. Discipline was rather loose and respect for authority almost non-existent for any foreign officer, with a few notable exceptions.

Our government also refused to allow our soldiers (all volunteers) to face British and Allied justice in the form of firing squads, so this probably gave them a greater sense of invulnerability when telling the local Pommy officers in their fancy clothes and neat uniforms where to go and what to do with themselves once they got there!!

I am not sure what happened to the kangaroo.
