Description :

It was with relief and pride that service personnel were welcomed home but many found that their previous jobs were no longer available. A commitment was made by the State governments to repatriate and compensate returned servicemen through the creation of soldier settlement schemes and the employment of returned soldiers in the public service.

'Be ye well or be ye ill, a crippled or a perfect man, Australia loves you still.' - page three of this piece
