PREPARED FOR THE WORST. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 5 January 1900

PREPARED IOE THE WORST Tee names of the British killed and wounded after a battle are ascertained by means of the identification cards which all our soldiers carry sewn up in the left-hand corner of their khaki tunics. On tho card is written the soldier's name, rank, regimental num. ber, together with the nauio and ad dress of his next of kin. The latter is added so that the authorities may know where to forward the effects of any soldier who gets killed, After alt engagement the roll is called as scon as the regiments get back to their camp. Every man who does not answer is " ticked off" as missing, and search is made for him on the Held. As the eearch parties come across the dead and wounded men they rip open the tunic at the left hand corner and take out the identification card. The cards thus collected are carried back tocatnp and handed over to the clerks of the general in command, who therefrom compile the casualty lists. After all the cards Lave been collected the roll is che...

GOING INTO BATTLE. How a Soldier Feels. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 5 January 1900

GOING INTO BATTLE. How a Soldier Peels Tiie question must often be asked by civilians, "How does a soldier feel when going into battle 1" and a Tommy Atkins, who possesses a ready pen, lias given a description of the sensations which lie experienced before a great conflict. One's feelings, he writes, de pend to a considerable extent on the nature of the conflict, the kind of trcops engaged, the weapons employed, and the duration of the iTattle. All men are not affect', d alike. Some men are cool, determined, and courageous ; some, lose all judgment, and will, single-handed, rush upon' hundreds; others are entirely unmanned, tremble like aspens, seem dead to every emo tion of honor or feeling of ehame, and will slink into coverts or run from the field. If skirmishers engage prior to a general battle, and a desultory firing is kept up for a while, one becomes used to it; .and, as the battle warms, it frequi lilly becomcs exciting, and men who trembled at (.lie fii'at few shots now rut...

THE MNCERS AT THE FRONT. Troopbr George Stratford, of Mait land fialf-squadron of Lancers, writ, ing to his mother, from Modder River on December 2ndifcays :—"It i8 very hot out here, and we will all be as brown as Chinamen before we return.

We hove been through three very stiff battles, but bare all escaped without injury. The first fight was at Belmont. It lasted about seven hours, and the fighting was very severe. The Boers occupi'd a splendid position. I can't say what were the losseis of the Boers, but about 250 Biitish were killed and wounded. It was a fearful sight after ; the battle.

ASSOCIATION CRICKET. Bermagui v. Cobargo. [Newspaper Article] — The Cobargo Chronicle — 5 January 1900

ASSOCIATION CEICKET. Bermagui: v. Cobargo In the final match of the first round of the Association competition in senior grade Cobargo defeated Berniagui last Saturday on the latter's wi kefc by 7 wickets. £oth clubs had'their strong eat teams in the field, in every sense of the word, Bermagui eleven containing 3 aborigines and Cobargo 1, Picalla. The wicket played a deal better than was anticipated, although the. ball at times had a tendency to kick and shoot. A little more attention to the wicket and fielding ground and cricket at the coaBt would be a keen pleasure to visitors. The scoring on both sides was small, the bowling being largely helped by an uncertain wicket. For Cobargo Picalla topk the bowling honors, and Hubert's was the finest performance for the home team. Gamp belt played a slow safe game for his runs but none of the other Cobargo batsmen were able to do much with the boiling. Campbell was at the wickets for an hour. McMillan batted best for Bermagui, making 27 by...

Sports at Bermagui South On New Year's Day, instead of the annual athletic spor b under the nan. agement of the Bermagui Athletic Ciub, a scratch programme was ar ranged by a number of the residents of Berniagui Sooth. The sports of the Athletic Club have always been largely attended by visitors from outside centres, but as the newly-formed Ber magui Jockey Olub had arranged a meeting oa the 16 th January the usual programme of athletics was foregone. The enterprise of the Southerners was ■ rewarded by an attendance of about 200, and seeing that the management had not the benefit of sate takings, the credit balance of £3 odd must be con sidered satisfactory.
