TO SAVE THE WOUNDED. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 17 July 1914
TO SAVE THE WOUNDED. On that fatal day, February 27th, 1881, Majuba Hill was the scene of a marvellous exhibition of valour, and an escape from death which was truly providential. While Cor poral Joseph Farmer, of the Army Hospital Corps, was attending to the fallen amid a hail of bullets, the doctor and one of the assist ants were struck down at the same moment. Thinking it was the re Ssult of an accident, he seized a ban dage and waved it in the air, in the hope that the Doers would see it and respect the wounded. He was bitterly mistaken, how ever. The deluge of lead became more and more fierce. A bullet shattered his wrist, and his right arm dropped, helpless to his side. "Never mind, I have another," said the brave fellow, as he picked up the bandage with is left hand and warved it aloft. An instant later, this arm, too, was shattered. But, undismayed, he continued signall ing with his maimned arms us best he could, miraculously escapirng a hundred deaths, until at last the fir...

Hairbreadth Escapes in Battle. SOLDIERS WHO HAVE COURTED DEATH AND LIVED. BENEVOLENT BULLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 17 July 1914
Hairbreadth Escapes in ~attle. SOLDIERS WHO HAVE COURTED EATHI AND LIVED. SBENEVOLENT BULLETS. In one case a bullet which struck a man on the temple passed harm lessly over the scalp; in another, a bullet struck a rib, was deflected, and, passing under the skin, found its exit on the opposite side of the body. But perhaps the most. sin gular illustrations of the vagaries iof bullets were furnished at the battle of Laing's Nek, froia which one sol dier emerged with three bullets and only two wounds to show for them, two of the balls having en tered the same wound. In another case a bullet, entering a soldier's left side, struck one of his ribs and re-emerged from the exact spot where it had ehtered. Brit even such bullets were not quite as benevolent as one of which Lieutenant Worsley tells the story. "In one engagement," he says, "one of our oflicers.. got a, ball in the right ear, which came out at the back of the neck; and though, after a painful illness, he recovered, yet his hea...
