I wrote an article about an incredible story for SBS, that of a little French orphan boy who was smuggled to Australia by a soldier who adopted him after the First World War.

You can read it in English here or in French here.

There’s also an interview with Anthony Hill, an author who published a book about the story, Young Digger. He’s a great storyteller; it’s definitely worth a listen!
