From Russian Anzacs in Australian History:

Ivan Kirilloff, who became ill after enlisting and did not reach the Western Front, wrote when his naturalisation was delayed: 'Let me point out that I was willing to serve the Country and the King even not being a subject of same. ... You would understand the feeling if you had to live in the country without having any right to express your own opinion.'
