SOUTH AUSTRALIAN CORPS OF VETERANS. AD1931. 34 men.
“Advertiser & Register” Newspaper. 28 May 1931, p.13.
ANNUAL REUNION OF NAVY AND ARMY VETERANS
Nearly a quarter of a century ago the Sooth Australian Corps of veterans came into being. It was composed of men who had seen active service in the wars of the Empire, and at the time of the world war the rules were relaxed to take in two or three veterans of Allied nations who had fought in earlier wars of the countries to which they originally belonged.
In those days the parade state of the corps was considerable, but every year, when members attend the annual luncheon which tbe Commonwealth Government tenders them, the numbers dwindle, and at present there are only 34 on the roll.
In view of the interest centred in South Australia's "Old Brigade," a few particulars regarding the career of every man of the corps are given at :
