jul 28, 1914 - Indigenous Australians are unable to enlist in the military

Description:

At the start of World War I, Indigenous Australians are unable to enlist in the military. In 1917, a new military order allows half-castes to enlist at the discretion of the examining medical officer. After the war, Indigenous veterans seldom receive recognition for their service and are often denied a ‘soldier settler block’, an entitlement given to other veterans of the war.
