GALLIPOLI HERO AT POZIERES [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 5 December 1916
GALLIPOLI HERO AT POZIERES Private James Williams, whose death from wounds has since been reported, wrote to his parents from somewhere in France, on August 3:— "Our brigade, with another, was selected to take Pozieres, a village near Albert, on the Somme. We were brought to Albert, and remain- ed there a day or two before going up to the line. Whilst there, we had the opportunity of going over the ground where the Tommies made their great advance on July 1. The whole place was a veritable sham- bles, and the ground, which look- ed as though a million volcanoes had been in action, was littered with British and German equip- ment, smashed machine guns, and here and there a corpse, that the burial parties had missed. The only semblance of trenches out of what once must have been a maze, was a German dug-out, 30 or 40 feet deep, timbered, and with sleeping quarters. "The Tommies must have suffered terribly, as the ground is sloping, and Fritz had converted every hillock into a fort, bu...
IMMUTABLE FACTS OF MASCULINE NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 5 December 1916
IMMUTABLE FACTS OF MASCULINE NATURE. Miss Rebecca- West writes in the "Star" a lively article on the pre posed work of women in the Na tional Mission. "The real danger of working for the enfranchisement of women was that after a short experience of con troversy one came to the conclusion that a much more urgent and neces sary step was the disenfranchise ment of men," she says." "Men obey their hearts rather than their heads. They are moved in argument rather by their preju dices than by any passion for just &nbsp; tice. But in the last two years one had forgotten, in gra.titude to ori defenders, these sad and iimmutable facts of -masculine natia:e. "Now, however, we have been' forcibly reminded of them during the last-few weeks by a controversy which has brought a little of -the heat of the prize ring into the A it glican Church. - "It is :pecularly unfortunate thatl. this dispersion of the calm.and sanw tifled atmosphere which we woul:i like to have maintained throughout th...

IDEAL OFFICERS. WHAT THE MEN LIKE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 12 December 1916
IDE AL OFFICERS. WHAT THE MEN LIKE. (By A Subaltern, in London'"Daily Mail," October 1o.) A little while ago I happened to" sit at mess next to one of those men to whom both the new army and the old are eternally indebted. He was a second lieutenant of some 35 years of age, powerfully built, with a closely cropped head and a seam ed. weather-beaten face. By a coincidence, which made thatI evening for nme singularly pleasant, this man happened to have been the company sergeant-major of the company in which I was a platoon commander on the Aisne. He had been one of the first to receive a commissioln when it was decided to promote a certain number from the ranks This was the first time we had met since we had been out together in France, and naturally we had a great deal to talk about. Dinner over, we lingered on at the end of the long mess-table with the port and biscuits between us. The situation had its humorous side. for many a time in the past had I, as a young officer full of bou...
