Ca Ne Fait Rien
Bound volume of “Ca Ne Fait Rien”, a unit paper for the 6th Australian Infantry Battalion in France. The issues were created between early 1917 and March 1919, and edited by Captain Charles ‘Chas’ Henry Gould and Regimental Quartermaster Sergeant Francis ‘Frank’ William Sutherland Noonan. “Ca Ne Fait Rien”, (meaning ‘no worries’), was published in the field, and was written and illustrated by hand. It contains satirical news items, sports reports, profiles of prominent people in the unit, poetry, serial stories, and comments on daily life in the 6th Australian Infantry Battalion.
These particular copies were sent to the Official War Records Section by Captain Charles Gould and became part of the collection of the Australian War Museum (later, the Australian War Memorial).
