Sydney : Angus & Robertson, 1940 
130 p. : ill. (some col.) ; 25 cm. 


Blinky Bill plays soldiers in the bush with his friends: frogs, tadpoles, and rabbits. Some Australian soldiers, who are looking for a mascot, see Blinky drilling his 'army' and ask him to be the mascot for Australian soldiers in Sydney. Not knowing what a mascot is, Blinky Bill at first refuses. Later, as he prepares to leave his home, Blinky celebrates with his mother and his bush friends in various celebrations.
