Comments: A great account of the Australian Army Chaplains Department during World War 1.
The Royal Australian Army Chaplains’ Department is an all-officer Corps within the Australian Army that provides ordained clergy to minister to the men of the Australian Army.
As of 2006, there are 151 serving regular chaplains (commonly known as “padres”) in the Australian Army; these belong to either one of several Christian churches, or to the Jewish faith. There are also chaplains in the Australian Army Reserve.
