Comments: The fascinating life story of author of Harry Freame DCM - a member of the 1st Battalion AIF and a  Gallipoli hero.

Born to a samurai clan mother and Australian father, Harry Freame’s remarkable life and mysterious death are the stuff of adventure novels.  Clipper ship sailor, adventurer, soldier of fortune, crack pistol shot and Gallipoli hero.  A man described by Australian First World War historian Charles Bean as ‘the most trusted scout on Anzac’ was this and much more.  Incredibly it is all true.

Following the outbreak of the Second World War with Nazi Germany and anticipating Japan’s inevitable march through the Pacific Freame was recruited from his apple orchards on the New South Wales New England tablelands into the world of mirrors as an undercover agent for Australian military intelligence.

But did the Gallipoli Samurai discover something about Japan’s proposed establishment of a puppet government following a successful invasion of Australia which set him on a path to tragedy?  And why was his strict adherence to the code of bushido to lead to his baffling death?
