A WEYMOUTH EPISODE.

Scene: Weymouth Camp orderly room, early in '16; Commandant, "The Double General."

General (to digger paraded for being A.W.L. for 28 days) : "Have you anything to say?"

Digger: "No, Sir!"

General: "Did you have a good time?”

Digger: "My oath, sir!"

General: "Why did you come back?"

Digger: "No money, Sir, and I want to go to France."

General: "Sar-Major, put him on the next draft."

Digger: "Thank you, sir."

General (to adjutant, as digger leaves orderly room): "What's the use of clinking a man who wants to fight."

"3rd Field Coy. Engineers," Buckland Hill.
