SALT was published fortnightly during World War Two by the Australian Army Education Service and distributed free to all ranks among all Australian troops in Australian and adjacent territories, and Royal Australian Navy, to inform, entertain and educate service personnel. Published in digest size, initial covers featured text descriptions of interior contents but eventually illustrative covers were employed featuring work from many cartoonists and illustrators of the time. SALT featured work from troops, staff writers and artists in the form of articles, illustrations, stories, poetry and cartoons.
