Ron Austin. The Fighting Fourth: A History of Sydney's 4th Battalion 1914-19. McCrae: Slouch Hat Publications, 2007. Private Mulqueeney's unit, though the poor sod was with it in the field for only a couple of months before his death. It had earlier landed at Gallipoli, on the first day; and after the Somme fought at 3rd Ypres, Broodseinde, Polygon Wood and the Hindenburg Line, among other places. This is, surprisingly, the first history of the 4th Battalion AIF; it looks to have done it justice as far as writing and production quality goes (it's fairly sparsely footnoted, but I suppose that's not what unit histories are about).
