THE CRIME.

Whilst serving under Colonel Royston in South Africa it was an unwritten law that an Aussie must always have a horse - get it honestly if you could, but, anyhow, get it!

My cobbers and I being without one, decided to raid the 18th Hussars. We got caught and clinked; paraded before the Old Man next day we pleaded guilty.

The sentence was 28 days, as the Old Man said "not so much for attempted horse stealing as for being so stupid as to get caught at it!"

A.H.P. (5 W.A.M.I.), Leederville.
