TWO STORIES FROM THE AUTHOR'S EXPERIENCE

 

   Upper right: The creek dam, mentioned in the text, was constructed nearly twenty years ago. It was probably the first earth dam built in Australia with large bulldozer and giant scoops (see Chapter XVIII). Upper left: The most recent creek dam, "Control" dam on "Kencarley", then nearing completion, now grassing up and well filled with water. (See Chapter XX.)

   Lower left: The first giant scoop built in Australia and designed and constructed by the author for mining purposes, is seen at work building a creek dam.

   Lower right : A smaller scoop (six yards capacity), designed and constructed by the author. Picture was taken at the Battle of Sattelburg, our first victory of the Pacific War. (Photo from Department of Information Film )
