Manuscript reference no. : NLA MS 9002.

Source of Acquisition In 1985 this collection was transferred from the State Library of South Australia to the National Library of Australia. The State Library had no record of the original donor of the collection. It is possible that the papers were collected by C.G. Kerr, a soldier who worked in an Australian Army propaganda unit in Brisbane, and whose typescript reminiscences of that period form a small part of the collection.
