    Written in 1918 by John Joseph Kennedy, the padre of the 53rd Battalion of the AIF – nicknamed in January 1917, The Whale Oil Guards.

    It is the story of the 53rd Battalion, the Green and Blacks, and of Major Oswald Croshaw. Kennedy describes their exploits at Alexandria, Fromelles, The Somme, Bullecourt, Ypres, Polygon Wood, Amiens and many other towns.

    The Nineteenth of July, 1916! The date will be written in letters of blood in the annals of our battalion. Fromelles! In years to come those who will carry on the glorious traditions of the Green and Blacks will salute the name and be inspired by the memory of our heroes who died in that battle.
