The Court Martial charge: In that he at Killarney Ireland on the 10th October 1919 when in uniform in the public dining room of the International Hotel said: 'We Australians fought for the independence and right to self-government to small nations which is being denied to the finest and oldest little country in the world by a few satellites of King George, who are filling their own pockets at the expense of the working people and whose hands are red with the blood of Irish patriots. The King and the Royal Family are of no use to this or any other country. I had hopes that the recent railway strike was the commencement of a revolution in England and the King fearing the same commanded Lloyd George to quash it with a firm hand,' or words to that effect
