Hard Jacka - an ANZAC tribute

Discussion in 'The Pub' started by I Adore Vic, Apr 20, 2009.

  1. Hey mods - I hope it's okay to post this up here. If not, apologies.

    I thought I'd post this as it may interest some of you, or you may know of someone who would be interested in attending. You don't need to have read the book.

  2. The book is a great read.

    If our war history pushes your buttons, this should not to be missed.

    Pity I live so far away :roll: ........any chance this event will be recorded or videoed?
  3. Another book about Jacka. Where can any new material come from?
