RE Hal Colebatch's "How unionists sabotaged our troops in World War 2" . Many years ago an elderly acquaintance related how on entering the Army during WW2 his unit was sent to Fremantle where our patriotic wharfies were refusing to load ships carrying supplies for our overseas troops. The lumpers were told to get to work or they would be shot-not only were they convinced but my friend said his Sergeant had told him they had genuine orders to shoot-it worked.
