Damian Callinan The Lost WW1 Diary of Private Paddy Callinan

Damian finds an old diary in a Warrnambool op shop. Is Paddy Callinan the mysterious digger his family never speak of?

Who Do You Think You Are? meets ‘An Equally Relevant Comparison’ as the three-time Barry nominee (Backyard Ashes, Spicks and Specks, skitHOUSE) brings the page’s characters to life and finds it’s a long way to Tipperary without GPS.

Obsessed from a young age about all things Anzac, Damian routinely circumnavigates all regional war memorials in search of diggers bearing his name. Finally he finds the diary that connects him to the Legend?

In its pages he learns the names of the pranksters who wore Simpson’s pantomime donkey suit, discovers that Hitler wasn’t the only shit painter in the trenches, muses that without New Zealand, Anzac Biscuits would just be Aac Buscuits and finds passages the war propagandists didn’t want us to read.
