Formatted Abstract/Summary
In 1903, the German naval ship Condor visited Adelaide and discovered to the
evident consternation of the ship's commander that the German Club in that city
(the Allgemeine Deutsche Verein) was a hotbed of socialist tendencies. The club
had a largely working-class membership, and portraits of socialist leaders were
displayed on the walls. Seven years later, the same vessel visited Adelaide
again and the captain was pleased to discover the club under more 'patriotic'
leadership, with Kaiser Wilhelm's portrait having replaced those of August Bebel
and his comrades.1 No such discordant notes were recorded when German
naval crews visited the Deutscher Turnverein, the German Club in Brisbane.
German naval officers noted with satisfaction the patriotism and the preservation
of national identity among Germans in the state of Queensland, where they saw
thriving communities of German farmers and strong ties to the German Protestant
church." [extract]
