The Kia ora coo-ee : the magazine for the ANZACS in the Middle East, 1918
Australian Commonwealth War Savings Certificates are in great demand with the A.I.F. in Egvpt and Palestine. During the months of April, May and June, 1918, 140 applications were received at the Staff Pay Office, Cairo, totalling £12,400. Apart from the fact that by investing their undrawn pay in this manner, the troops are helping to finance our share of the War from Australian sources, the investment is a very attractive one. The return is 41/2 % compound interest, free of all taxation; and there is no doubt that, after the War, taxation will of necessity be much higher than, ever before.
