A Habit of Lights!
Dear "Non-Com." - Just prior to the second Gaza push the 3rd A.L.H. Brigade had to sink some tanks near Jacko's lines. The order was - no lights or smoking.
One night Colonel Nugget Scott saw some wag smoking in the hole and roared: "What's that light doing down there?"
This was too good to be missed, and the reply echoed back:
"Burning, you stupid blank! Burning!" Scott was a sport, and joined in tho chorus of laughter.-"Wahud," Minnivale.
[If you sent your name I've mislaid it. Please forward so that I can send on the half guinea.-"Non-Com."]
Captain William Henry SCOTT, a 34 year old Civil Engineer from “Vailima”, Wangaratta, Victoria. He enlisted on 11 November 1914; and subsequently Returned to Australia, 26 December 1918.
