An Epic From Egypt. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 6 July 1917

An Epic From Egypt. It ain't no use a-sweariu', It ain't no good to fret; There's little gained by grousin', Or getting ail upset. This wilderness is rotten All flies and dust and. tears, But the Israelites they stuck it For years and years and years. The Willie Willies choke you, The dust-storms get yer down; The red sun robs your beauty . And burns yer black and brown. The drought is something shocking, The thirst, our squadron fears. Can only be abolished By beers and beers and beers. But war won't last for ever, ^ This scrap'll soon-be done; An' we'll have done our little bit, A-strafing o' the Hun. An' when we get back home again, An' meet our little dears, All thought of Egypt will be drowned In cheers and cheers and cheers.

PATRIOTISM AT BRIGHT. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-Would you allow me a Bmall space in your valuable paper to write on the above subject. There seems to be a great deal of discontent amongst the people of Bright over this subject. I landed off the Brambarah, A37, on the the 9th June, in Melbourne, after being away from Australia for 17 months, and I was very glad to get back homo in my little township, Bright. I was met at the railway station by the shire president (Cr G. R. Abraham) and Cr Goldsworthy, and also other people in spite of the rain. I appreciated their kindness, and also the words of welcome spoken to me. I was home a week, when Bome very kind people gave me a social in tho usual way-a practice that had existed for some time for soldiers going and home coming. Very few, however, put in an appearance, and I was told it was the same old crowd every time. A gentleman, during the course of an address, said it waa the duty of everyone to attend these socials, etc. The moment ho spok...
