Hi there,

Here's a link to the book published over 100 years ago and mentioned in the opening post.

http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/25452

From RW Campbell's preface ...

I am a Scot. ...... I have lived in Australia and New Zealand. I have served on a Sydney paper and with the New Zealand Herald. I have met every Premier (Federal and otherwise), from "Andrew" Fisher to "Bill" Massey. And, during my stay, I made it my duty to study the Citizen Army—a National Service organisation.

This was before the war. And this army was founded by "K" and the Governments of Australia and New Zealand. Did they see ahead? One is almost tempted to think so. In any case, the possession of a General Staff and the framework of a National Army ensured the rapid mobilisation of a voluntary force to assist the Motherland. This force was armed, clothed, equipped and staffed from the existing military organisations in Australia and New Zealand.


May I ask if RW Campbell is an ancestor of our OP?

School Cadets compulsory for boys from 1911  :)
http://www.diggerhistory.info/pages-army-today/military_cadets.htm

Conscription for part time home service, including service by cadets, was introduced in 1909 and, under the Defence Act of 1903, the Corps was included in the provisions for Universal Military Training.
