Press notice issued to the 24th Battalion AIF regarding the new Regimental Field Press and intention to issue a battalion publication. Names for the publication are invited.

Eight issues plus a 'preliminary publication' of the Red and White Diamond, a journal of the 24th Battalion, were published. It was printed during and shortly after World War I on a 'regimental field press', and was intended to 'be a newspaper with a humerous element decidedly prominent', and 'not to be any form of an official war budget... We would rather make you laugh than drive you to hard thinking, though we may get serious at times. It is not to be a political organ, or a church paper, but we will find room for all normal tastes and sentiments.' (ST 036423.2)
