In proportion to her population South Australia has every reason to be proud of her contribution of men to the Great European War.
As soon as hostilities broke out on August 4, 1914, there was a spontaneous offer of help to the motherland, and when the offer was accepted, recruits came forward from all parts of the Commonwealth in large numbers, but in no state did they come in greater force than from South Australia. The first contingent sailed from Adelaide on Tuesday, October 20, 1914 and since then the men have gone forward at regular periods, and still more are training.
