Crowfoot watches sadly from a troop carrier as Kekkonen gloats from his submarine. “Hey Paul! How’s that Iberia working out for you?”

Unguarded troop ships carry a small and disorganized gaggle of Australian soldiers towards Looma, one of the last Boer cities. For backup they have brought a lone carrier with a single plane. Typical Aussie brilliance - although, in the real life Boer War, British Australia sent a force of Aborigines to South Africa. At the end of the war, they wouldn’t let them back into Australia because they weren’t white. Is that what’s happening here? Are these just the Kimberley draftees, deemed acceptable losses?
