New South Wales Imperial Bushmen
Things for the column are going from bad to worse. No wood for fires and so a cold start in the morning. Unicorn brand Bully Beef unfit for human consumption and rejected. Urgent calls for more supplies go out to the victulers. Finally, at the end of the day a dispute breaks out about the weight of army biscuits. The men believe with good cause that they have been short weighted. Cold nights, no warm beverages, poor food and short rations send moral plumetting by the time the next camp is settled.
