    Description
    A magazine from WWI troopship HMAT OSTERLEY. It includes caricatures, photographs, poetry and articles related to crew and onboard activities.
    SignificanceThis magazine was produced with the input of troops on board the OSTERLEY on their way to England for training for WW1. It gives a unique and poignant insight into the personalities and feelings amongst those en route and certainly reflects both the humour and patriotism that defined the Australian solider at that time.
    HistoryThe OSTERLEY was requistioned from the P & O SN Co at the start of the war as a troopship by the Australian Imperial Force (AIF).
