tradie's bit for the nation

an experience of city and town

Sometimes, it's the little things that make you feel Australian.
 
I was walking along my street the other day and noticed this electrical contractor's van with an Aussie flag sticking up from the ladder mounted on the roof. Not a big deal, just a quiet gesture of pride I see from time to time. A tradie doing his bit for the nation by letting everyone know what and who he stands for.
