 The Petition  

The petition you will be putting your names to reads:

To the Honourable the Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of Australia.

JOHN MONASH was recognised as the most effective commander in France, 1918. He commanded an Army of five Australian Divisions (up to eight Divisions when international resources were added to his command at one time) designated a Corps by the British to keep the upstart “Dominion” of Australia in its place.

In the civil sphere his engineering skills built much of Victoria’s early infrastructure and mastered brown coal as a source for that state’s electricity. His community status enabled him to resolve a major police strike in Victoria and ensured there was no anti-Semitism in Australia. As a true democrat, he stood against fascism.

We whose names appear below request the posthumous promotion of JOHN MONASH to the rank of Field Marshal in the Australian Defence Force. Thus honouring a great Australian.
