Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

The Australian War Memorial in Canberra has a photographic archive which many researchers in the USA and UK have overlooked.
The dummy WW1 tanks built by Aussie engineers for the Western Front in 1918 look impressive.

I heard some army hid soldiers in a wooden horse before apparently retreating from the city under siege. The horse was just larger than the city gates... was in an old book.
