  • 1 Jun 1940, FOR PROTECTION
    Sir, In the present atmosphere of uncertainty those of us who had experience during the last war are anxious to do our bit again. We cannot all serve abroad again, but we could be effective at home, and so release others. In the Dandenongs, for example, instructors could be appointed to specified districts—now and without delay—to visit various centres on certain nights and afternoons to give us instruction in the use of modern weapons, thus brushing up our previous training. In this way every district could have a group able to do something effective in any emergency. -Yours, &c. R. G. BARNES. Upper Beaconsfield.17
  • 22 Jun 1940, WASTE ON HOMES?
    Sir,-Is this a time for the State Government to plunge the State into the expenditure of thousands of pounds on building homes? It may be a worthy object, but more important at the moment is the conservation of our efforts, energy, and money to do all we possibly can to make our homeland safe.-Yours, &c. R. G. BARNES. Upper Beaconsfield.18
  • 15 Apr 1941, ADVICE TO WORKERS
    Sir,-We read of the wonderful sacrifices working men and women are making and the hardships they are facing in Britain, but here large sections of our working people, forgetting that they are servants of the public, are demanding concessions for themselves under the threat of strike. Do these people realise that there is a grim war on in which we as a nation are fighting for our very existence and all we hold dear? While we do not deny that their claims in many cases may be right we question their procedure. Workers to-day can best help themselves and improve their conditions by keeping things solid and unbroken on the home front. -Yours, &c, R. G. BARNES. Upper Beaconsfield.19

Brief Description
Letters from O.M.'s:
HUGH CRESSWELL ANTHONY, who was at the School from 1901 to 1905, is a prisoner. He writes thus from Gutersloh, Germany, that he is well, and says the camp is the best and largest in Germany, with officers from almost every allied country; fourteen tennis courts, hockey grounds, cricket nets, etc. He says: "It was on the occasion of our second visit to Pozieres, and on the night of August 18th that we had only gone about fifty yards when something hit me on the funny bone. The arm was broken, so off we went for about another hundred yards, but, alas, I lost a lot of blood, became weak, and was forced to rest in a shell-hole. No stretcher-bearers were to be seen. I was getting weaker, although not in any pain, so I decided to cast my equipment off and get back to our lines, thence to our dressing station. It was easier said than done, the ground being all shell holes. 'Verey light' seemed to be going up from all four sides, shells and machine guns were cracking on all sides, and I lost direction. There was a road close by, and I thought that once on it I could not miss our trench, so I got there in due course, but it looked different. However, I went along it for a bit, then turned off to the left at a point which I thought would take me to our 'hopping-off' trench. Well, I wandered and fell about till at last I saw a trench which wasn't showing any signs of activity. I was positive it was the trench we had just left, so I flopped into it. Even when I got in I was still sure of my ground. As I turned the first traverse I was greeted with 'Yah! Votz! Gotz! Thiz!' etc. and was promptly grabbed by the throat . They soon saw I was just about all out. They lowered me to the ground, bandaged my arm amid great excitement. They made one soldier get out of his dug-out into which I was put. One chap gave me a drink of coffee. I was escorted away through our shell fire to a dressing station, and eventually found myself at the hospital, where I remained till September 5th. We were well cared for, and my arm, the left, made rapid progress. No bones were broken; it had practically healed when I entered the Munster Hospital (5/9/16). We arrived here on the 12/9/16. I was in the camp hospital here for a day, but am now perfectly well."
