113951. I was born in the second half of the 19th century in Victoria. With little formal education, leaving school when barely in my teens, I then become self educated. My early employment was in newspapers. I later worked in manufacturing. I played a musical instrument and was a leader in a church band. During World War I, I became involved in the conscription debate. Again I worked for a newspaper. I was married in 1917 but the marriage was not a happy one, although some said that was the doing of my spouse. I spent some time as a member of the States Grants Commission and also sat on a Royal Commission. With Italy's invasion of Abyssinia I called for unity and a strong stand from Australia. I'd seen the war clouds abroad. I strongly believed Australia's defence weakness had to be remedied. At the outbreak of war I proposed Australia set up an Advisory War Council. My views on the war were not popular with all and at times I came under strong attack from those on the left. I strongly believed in Australia making her own assessments and acting accordingly when dealing with war issues. Later events would vindicate my stand. I made a long trip to Britain, hoping to improve relations and to some degree this was successful. I think most thought I had done a good job and that was it. Who am I?
