Private Tim W Tovell of No 4 Squadron, Australian Flying Corps, demonstrating how the Squadron's orphan boy mascot 'Digger', Henri Heremene, was inserted into a specially prepared oat sack to smuggle him to England when the unit started its journey home to Australia. Digger had become the Squadron's mascot on 25 December 1918 and had been accepted at all levels and all agreed to assist in an attempt to smuggle him home to Australia. There is evidence of Henri signing his name as Honore, indicating it is his real name.
