Summary

This guide first describes the large general series of records relating to the war which ranged across policy, administration, war service and repatriation. It then considers aspects of the war for which smaller series and spcific items from the large general series are relevant. Those aspects are: the commitment of the Australian contingents; the raising and supporting of the contingents by civil and military officers in Australia; the contingents in the field; controversies arising from the war, such as the defeat at Wilmansrust and the subsequent mutiny, and the trial and punishment of officers of the Bushveldt Carbineers who had an Australian connection; and the aftermath of war, involving the return of Australian contingents, the distribution of medals, gratuity payments and pensions, and the memorials and histories devoted to their memory.
