'Aussie' was a popular Australian soldiers magazine during and after World War 1. The magazine had its origins in 1914 under a different name and was transformed into 'Aussie' in 1918. This compilation covers monthly issues from No 1 in January 1918 to No. 13 in April 1919.
The magazine was created for the soldiers and was largely written by the soldiers. Its object was to be "bright, cheerful and interesting, to reflect that happy spirit and good humour so strongly evident throughout the Aussie Army"
Each issue consists of approximately 16 pages. And includes many humourous and personal stories, poems, songs, tips and sketches which reflect the life of 'the Australian soldier' in a unique and fascinating way.
