Melbourne, printed by Exchange Press [for the No. 5 A.G.H. Magazine Committee], August and September 1918.

Quarto, two issues, 48 and 49-88 pages with numerous illustrations (most of them after photographs, but there are a few Percy Lindsay sketches in the second number) plus advertisements on three surfaces of both covers.

Two-colour wrappers a little creased, marked and slightly worn (the first one a little more so); in excellent condition.

A third and final number was published in October. A short article in 'The Argus' on 18 September 1918 announced that the 'use of the Base Hospital in St Kilda Road as a general hospital for soldiers is to be discontinued'. It makes mention of the magazine, 'of considerable merit and containing a good deal of interesting news', not least war-service memoirs. Not in Dornbusch; not in Fielding and O'Neill. [2 items].
