Simpson Had Two Donkeys.

Dear "Non-Com.,” Simpson had two donkeys. We used to watch him from Steele's Post. A daily miracle-until the day he failed to come back!

Two or three days after he was killed the two donkeys were to be seen browsing just opposite the ration dump in Monash Gully. Presently the Turks commenced sniping the little beggars. They took no notice of the bullets, and to save them from sudden death we pelted them with spuds and anything we could lay our hands on. I wonder if "Jacko" really tried to hit them?

We drove them under cover, and they survived for another day.

"Sikh," Kondinin.
