I. by day, when fclie eyes of cri tics were upon him. The darkness might have saved him; but one clay someone said in his hearing' that the , worst of having a coward in the trench was the effect on the other men; and in truth fear and courage •are just about equally courageous. But the maxim was unfortunate. The coward kept saying- to himself, "If I make the others funk I had better be away," and daily, against Iris wil.l, schemes of escape of the maddest sort waltzed round his brain, bat bronght.no decision. At h'.st this rage of indecisive misery reached a pitch that became intolerable. The night was moonless but clear, and from the pit of the trench the stars seemed to look down with a pitiless scrutiny which added to bis wi etched ness more than any sane and soi.d mind could under stand. Before he knew what he was doing, the coward slipped over the parapet and began to make his tremulous way towards the German trenches. ' Further fears now seized him, and he .sidled off to the ...

DRUMMED OUT. [Newspaper Article] — Gilgandra Weekly — 28 January 1916

DRUMMED OUT. . A recalcitrant recruit -was on 'Thursday subjected to the indignity • of being "drummed out" of Dubbo .Military , Camp. The process (if summed out" consists of beinc div of the Boldier's uniform, hooted Tjjfc-the company, escorted to the gate ' to the accompaniment of the lumnliatii-ig drumming, and, as a fin al act in the proceedings," the gate is • slammed on the unruly one. Such . action on the part of the military .authorities should rather tend to ,r..stimulate recruiting, for it will be . apparent to decent, patriotic men, that misbehaviour on the part of the rowdy element will not be tolerated. If such misconduct went unpunished ,, ajn.d unchecked, recruiting would be consider tliy prtijuUiced. 'i?he aiithorit I consider^ to be commended for their sfc&tcment&jon. ; "n .
