Australian Nationalist Calendar (selected)
Why an Australian Nationalist Calendar? As a practical example to the young. To embrace suffering for 'the cause' to be advanced a daily snippet of racial history can inspire & remind: we owe existence to past heroes. We have grouped these selected dates under the categories of ‘Military’, ‘Political’, ‘Cultural’ and ‘Racial turning points’. AN Calendar is published in the Public Interest. No action should be inferred or implied. All remarks are the opinion of the editor alone.
