Ion L Idriess
Ion Llewellyn Idriess (aka Jack) was born at Waverley, Sydney on 20th Sep 1889 & died 6 June 1979 at Mona Vale,
Sydney and was cremated.
In 1914 Idriess enlisted in the 5th Light Horse, Australian Imperial Force, as a trooper. Specializing in sniping,
he was wounded at Gallipoli, witnessed the charge at Beersheba, and was wounded again in the fighting after the battle of Gaza.
He was invalided home in March 1918. His experiences were to form the basis of a series of pamphlets on sniping & guerilla
warfare published in 1942 when an invasion of Australia was expected.
After convalescence he surveyed and explored parts of Cape York, travelled with pearlers and missionaries in Torres Strait
and then turned to gold in New Guinea, buffalo shooting in the Northern Territory, and exploration in Central and Western Australia.
Although he generally wrote under his name, his early articles for The Bulletin were written under the pen-name of "Gouger".
When travelling, Idriess was known by the moniker "Jack".
In 1968 he was awarded an OBE for his services to publishing.
All of his books very collectible.
