Australian Surf Men in Gaza: blast from the past

I think I might have posted this before on Facebook, but its just so classic I had to do it again here on my blog! Its a video of Australian troops in Gaza in 1939 giving a display of surf rescue as the Australian Broadcasting Commission’s mobile unit transmits the scene to homes thousands of miles away. A small group of men take part in a sprinting race along the beach as Australian troops in uniform march along. The soundtrack plays an Australian wartime song referring to a “nasty nazi”.
