Ion (Jack) Llewellyn Idriess 1889-1979

Dedicated to the Life and Works of

HORRIE THE WOG DOG                                       Documents related to the evolving book.

Jack said "Horrie the Wog Dog" was "Written from the Diary of J. B. Moody, Private VX13091, AIF" but the story is actually much more complicated.

The story of the book's development (and the story of Horrie) will be explored on other pages but the documents set out below show clearly that the book was a collaborative project in which Jack Idriess and Jim Moody agreed to share the Royalties.

The documents as they appear are hard to read but they can be copied and/or saved. If you are having difficulty please contact me and I will post hard copies.
