Effie Karageorgos will share some insightful and often entertaining extracts from the letters and diaries of men who served in South Africa at the turn of the 19th century and in Vietnam in the 1960s. These documents reveal how the men hoped to bring honour to their country but also expose the differences between their reactions to war and those of the Australian public.
