Abstract

This article challenges a popular stereotype of Australian military history through the microcosm of a military hospital in 1915. It shows that interstate rivalries had survived federalism intact and explores how parochialism and a breakdown of relations between the health professions brought about an unseemly row. It revisits a scandal that is largely ignored in the public ‘memory’ of Australia’s military and medical contribution to World War I.
