A BOMBING INTERLUDE.

During bomb-throwing practice on Perham Downs, a Tommy instructor, subsequent to an outstanding throw, by one of the squad, said to me, "Go on, Aussie; beat that throw."

I knew my limits, and replied: "No good to me, Sar-Major. I can't.”

"Laddie," he said, "there's no such word in the British Army. Watch me beat it!"

I'm sorry I can't (there it crops up again) report that be proved his assertion - but he nearly threw his arm his arm off trying!

"Toc-o-Emma,” Kununoppin.
