Well, 'Advance Australia Fair' as they say (or sing) in that stirring National Anthem, sung just before Rugby matches etc (often against England...:grinning: ).

A nice set of Aussie infantry here, Mr B, well tanned and suitably sun-bleached.

Alan’s list of contributions (especially for the North African campaign) just keeps going! I love it. It’s nice to see such a nice set of figures painted so finely.
