German Railway gun captured at the Battle of Amiens - WW1

A huge German Railway gun captured at the Battle of Amiens on 8th August 1918 became a source of some Allied controversy. The Australian 31st Battalion effected its capture, but, in the wake of the continued Allied advance, the gun received a large painted inscription stating that the gun had been captured by the British 4th Army (see picture) of which the ANZAC Corps was a component. A thorough investigation was made of the circumstances of the gun's capture - an insightful example of the contested nature of war material involving notions of identity and ownership - before it was finally transported to Australia for public display (AWM Archive). The gun was originally intended for naval use, mounted in the battleship SMS Hessen. Date: 1918

The Whip Hand, by Bairnsfather

'The Whip Hand' 'Private Mulligatawny (the Australian stock-whip wonder) frequently causes a lot of bother in the enemy's trenches' Bruce Bairnsfather's "stock whip" cartoon sums up the practical, self-reliant, rough and ready boldness associated with the Aussies. Most Anzac troops were deployed in the Middle East, and of course at Gallipoli, before being sent to the Western Front in 1916 (the time of this picture). the Australians were no walkover, and many felt bitterly let down by what they considered the badly judged British command and the resultant poorly organised British troops. One Australian mining engineer railed against the "British staff, British methods and British bungling". the Australians and New Zealanders proportionately suffered some of the highest losses of the war, and the image of the Anzac soldier remains one of the most iconic. Date: 1916
