The friendship was learnt in their way of working. They learnt to believe each other in their togetherness. They had been to many places like Hungerford, Bourke and Billabong together. They give their whole belief to their friends. So, no matter what their friends said, they would believe it. Whatever their mate want them to do, they would do it without any hesitation. Even though their friends were doing something wrong, they would think it as the most right one because no matter what a mate may do, a mate can do no wrong. Their belief toward each other was built in a very long journey of togetherness. They have experienced the bitterness and the sweetness of life together.
Even when they were jailed in a gaol, they still shared their belief. Even though they were jailed, by being together, still they were able to find a happiness and kept each other happy. They would believe in each other no matter what other people said about their friends. Even though people say that their friends were bad, they would not believe other people. They would never say any bad things about their own friends even when their friends were away or even already dead. They would still fight for their friends.

[...] Mate is stronger than friend. - Creed, instead of faith/believe. Faith and believe are just usual, while according to Longman Dictionary, the word creed means a set of beliefs or principles , especially religious ones.
