The Australian Army boasts a broad variety of traditions, some of which belong to the Service as a whole, others to a particular corps, regiment or rank. These customs and traditions vary: some are solemn, others are humorous and still others incorporate the rules of social etiquette, manners and style. Looking Forward, Looking Back – Customs and Traditions of the Australian Army explores the Australian Army’s rich and proud history. Our Army’s customs and traditions are far from static; they are dynamic as they evolve and adapt just like the Army itself. More than anything, they instil a strong sense of belonging in our Diggers. The teamwork, pride, discipline and respect of the past continue to inspire our present modern day Army.

  1. Jobson offers the reader an insight to Customs, Traditions and History of the Australian Army at their finger tips. ‘Looking Forward Looking Back’ is a beautifully presented book which has a wow factor with its stand out hard cover of ‘Rising Sun badge and poppies’. I was totally engrossed the first time I opened the book and started reading the contents. Jobson has produced a book that every soldier, ex soldier, future soldiers and military historians should have in their library.
