At the end of the nineteenth century soldiers from Australia came under fire in Africa - they were the first of one and a quarter million Australian men and women to serve their country in war and conflict and in every continent except the one they call home. Amongst them were the first of more than one hundred thousand to die in the service of Australia. The chronicle of Australia's soldiers from then till now is full of heroism, humour, mateship and larrikinism. It has bred perhaps the most enduring Australian icon - the digger. This is his story.
