Welcome to Australia

Recommended Posts

Here are some pages from a 55 page booklet published by the United States Military in WW2 to try to teach American Servicemen about Australia when they landed on our shores.I have also seen one about the United Kingdom as well.

Some of the Slang meanings are laughable,but pretty close.  :w00t:
