One such writer and photographer was Ronald K. Monro who died young in war time.
Below is a short story from his only book and introduction by Charles Barrett who was also a prolific author and expert of his day.
Since I posted this I have had contact with Ron Monro's son Robin.
That's one of the wonderful things about the internet.
I have now found many of the photos that Ron took in the 2nd world war at the Australian War Museum.
Here is a link to the archives.
