He feels we push his kinsman out where cities do not reach. Parliament has yet to hear the elbows maiden speech. One day he'll leave the Army then joined the leggy shell and he hopes will give a better deal to the Aboriginal. Mm hmm. A story. The color digger story emerged in our community. The story was not just only about Harold West. It was about all of us, and I think Uncle Harold Spirit is now fighting for all That kind of recognition and honor and respect for all indigenous soldiers. On. There's so many more stories to be told. I can tell you stories that you know where a NEB original digger from book for example, you know, he got a B C.

A large number of those main room hoping to enlist too, I guess get away from that mission Life and the restrictions of the Protection Act. Some of them sort of the way to perhaps even get an exemption from the Protection Act. On. There's a great story of the boys from Marambra, which the Russian shade uncovered in liver and like 100 project, and we support it supported their research through the state library. There were 16 aboriginal blokes who enlisted from From show big and over Amber as it was back then. They came down to Brisbane with the emission superintendent and When they had the re creating much down George Street. They I heard the cry of Who's going to fill the empty saddles and These young black souled camped up on the horses and very down the main street is proudest punch and One of them. He didn't quite have enough paperwork because under the defense said you needed to have substantially European origin or descent, and this bloke didn't have enough paperwork. So he was put on the train back to Schaumburg. Back to Bergen and then picked up at Morgan and at the train station and taken back back home. The other bloke say, stayed at the depot at the training camp for month, and unfortunately, the sad part was say here that I've enlisted. I've shown that bravery and loyalty and All of them was sent back. They army decided that they would a safely to aboriginal to black Tonto to join the service. Is ah! Set of letters from one of the Blackman brothers up here who Was separated from his family at at Cherbourg and was trying to reconnect with him. And he wrote this scathing letter to the to the Queensland government, where he was saying well when he went and forth the Queen King and country he thought Things might computer he thought that his life would change. But he said Coming back. It's Hayes just being traded like a Mongol dog. And fortunately very devout are some good stories. My great uncle, for example, and two other blacks from there. You're our permission on the Queen's. I knew South border. Just never knew. Boom. I They had a welcome home. One of the very few examples of AH welcome home that's been documented or reported, and the Defense Department Center representatives from Sydney and it was written up in several newspapers at the time back in 99. And it was also one of the first memorials for that highlighted, Aboriginal soldiers say We'll see the three of them. Jack Stacy, George Bennett and Charles Turner Bird that one. The original Woman boil David, your driver. And then when you're Robert closed down shortly after they moved to were present day to Miller is now a new bag A villa and they the memorial was moved over there and then it was Added later on with the soldiers from the Second World War and then light of it name and other conflicts. Another history, which has largely gone untold, that of Tasmanian aboriginal involvement in the war. My name is Andrea Jerad on Guy have masters from university test ammonia historian with an interest in social history and military history. People kept signing me. Oh, I didn't know there any aboriginal since it was served. When I did my project, I had 74 on our think that there's probably I've been given the names of probably another three or four from Kangaroo Island, who were the descendants off test main Aboriginal women. Every one of the trains are observed was fact the these main, the chances of them being promoted past the point of being a non commissioned officer was Very slim. We have one guy who was my lieutenants, and he was probably one of the first or the second officer, Original officer to be commissioned. Also, they're probably hadn't been exposed to things like respect, treat conditions and things like that. So there soon but become ill. Basically it's the effect of the opportunities for promotion was slim because who wants to be told what to do about an Aboriginal man? If people know knew that their aboriginal that there would be looked down on considerably? And what do you think it is that people would have that assumption that no or not many average nor men from Tasmania would have served. Um, I think it's master was simply ignorance on DNO. Having thought that those thieves, people say there's a saying people from coat barren island. If you look at the population there, that is a lot of a nearly all the young men have gone to gone away and My suspicion is that the teacher who was on the on the schoolmaster who was on the island there would had a background in the British army. And he thought that wants to encourage the and def differently, encouraged these men to enlist. Healthy God. Most unusual God, this in all the empires Army, we meet the only all Aboriginals. What in the A. I am original Aboriginal antics. They're not in the Army as a curiosity volunteers in the service of the country they loved. They.
