tomndebb- it seems you've hit most of the sources I found. Though I certainly can believe kangaroos cannot walk backwards, emus don't quite work for me. I suppose some field research is in order. (Although the other posters seems to support this conclusion.) That said, it would seem rather odd to use these animals as symbols for the motto "always forward" if the symbology is, well, unknown. I mean, really, who the heck would think of kangaroos and emus as symbols for progressiveness?
