A quarter of a century ago a large number of people left Australia with the idea of the founding a New Australia – a communistic paradise – in the middle of Paraguay, in South America (states The Diggers’ Gazette). The attempt was a disastrous failure, but it is interesting to learn that the half-dozen families still left of the original settlers at Colonia Cosme sent 14 volunteers to the war practically – every fit man.

This book has been written as a guide to the large and varied collection of aircraft types that have been operated by, and for, all three services. Some of these aircraft, such as the Supermarine Spitfire, will be very well known to most of the public, but throughout the more than 106 years of Australian military aviation there have been a large number of types that will not be familiar.

South Australians are lucky. They have not only a temperate climate but a government, developed from the principles of the Enlightenment, which encourages innovation and social progress. The lead South Australians have given the world in agriculture, science and social advancement can, in part, be attributed to the women and men described in this volume.
