I was standing outside Reserve Bank HQ in Sydney, about to keep an appointment to discuss the Aussie Notables series. I was accosted by two army personnel who were selling poppies. Having bought one, I asked them what they knew of John Monash. They had never heard of him. If either of you two men are reading this, you can buy a copy of our version of his life at a $5 special to find out why he was our greatest soldier.
