Diggers' Page

Well Diggers, here's your first page of pics of yesteryear. As you can see, they're real old-timers, all the property of Stan Wilkinson, who is now collecting pics from you for this page. To date, however, Star hasn't received much from you World War II chaps, so start digging into those trunks and old boxes. You're bound to have lots of good stuff there. Have you any pics of Gallipoli, and other hot spots you digs found yourselves in. You have? then give them to stan.
