'Without Precedent'

[No Place, No Publisher, 1993].

Foolscap folio, processed computer-printout, [ii], 52, [26] (reproduced documents) leaves (rectos only) with numerous illustrations (indifferent reproductions from photographs, with poorly-printed captions resupplied on small adhesive labels).

Plastic comb-bound card covers with a clear plastic overlay (lightly discoloured); an excellent copy with the armorial bookplate of Bendigo historian Alexander Hepburn Stone.

The memoir of one of the six RAAF servicemen court-martialled and jailed for insubordination at Benalla in 1941. Some fifty years later, in 'February 1990, it was suggested I write my history as it might tend to eradicate the cause of my tension and anxiety from my mind'; for some people, the war never ended. Presumably this memoir was privately produced in small numbers for limited circulation; not (yet!) in Trove.
