Sunny morning breakfast in camp

One of the truly great things about campin’ and shootin’ with friends is the recounting over and over the fun times, the great shots and the flukes, the camp meals, roaring fires and grand friendships. And the stories that become embellished, at first just a trifle, then oft times overly exaggerated and always, always better with each telling. Enjoy another visit with us Around the Traps.

flag raising

The blue and white Southern Cross flag first received major recognition when hoisted in December 1854 at the Eureka Stockade, Ballarat where diggers swore an oath: “We swear by the Southern Cross to stand truly by each other and fight to defend our rights and liberties.”

The flag was commonly referred to at the time as the Australian Flag of Independence, also as the Digger’s Flag or simply as the Southern Cross.
