The fair dinkum war

David Cox

“That morning, something important happened. It began with a great rumble that came in through our classroom window and rumbled on and on. An endless line of trucks and jeeps and tanks and weapons carriers came around the corner and along our street. There were big cannons, too. Soldiers in the trucks waved to us.”

Artist David Cox recalls what it is like to be a child during the Second World War, and his warm observations reveal a resilient, quintessential Australian spirit.
