‘Digger Smith’ is a series of narrative poems about an Australian soldier coming home in the closing months of the Great War minus a leg and with ‘ANZAC eyes’ … what a later war would call ‘The Thousand Yard Stare’. Despite his post-traumatic stress disorder, Digger Smith sets about ministering to everybody’s troubles but his own … his internal conviction that his amputee status will make him seem ‘half a man’ in the eyes of the lady love he left behind when he went off to the War. Oh Digger Smith, how little faith you have in woman… – Summary by Son of the Exiles
