In 1915 this area was held by 14 Bn AIF commanded by Lt Col Richard Courtney and became known as Courtney's Post. The saga of the Courtney's starts in Ireland and moves to Australia during the Gold Rush. Military service became a tradition and carried on for over four generations. This book, well illustrated with photos from the Courtney collections, provides the reader with a valuable insight into the development of the Australian Army from colonial times through two world wars and beyond.
