A story featuring a real place in Australia that was built in a response to the war and how the community fundraised for all the gear. And then built it in 1 day which broke a record at the time. And how the house is now a museum to the wars. It mentioned NZ soldiers with the Australian ones when discussing the various wars we have fought along side. Interesting read.
