BAGOT HOWLERS [Newspaper Article] — Army News — 2 November 1941
BAGOT HOWLERS Capt. Redwood of - Bde., H.Q., now thinks it is easier to get into hospital than it is to get out again. He insists that he is quite well but the M.O. knows best. You should see the human art gal lery in Ward 5. Lt. Webb's brother officers from the (-) Pioneers have had a great time signing and draw ing on his plaster leg. Webby is quite proud of it, too. By the way, Major. Chisholn and Lieut. Harris make great mess or derlies. Try them out when they get back to their Units, and if you have any trouble just send for one of the Sisters. They tell me that Gnr. Bill Hill has asked for an armed guard to take care of his model "Spitfire." A certain nurse has had her eye on it for some time now.

BARRACK BLOCK BANTER [Newspaper Article] — Army News — 2 November 1941
BARRACK BLOCK BANTER One cannot help but remark on the melodious (?) voice of the "Mid night Serenader" of No. 2 Bay, No. 2 Barrack Block. Its owner (of the "Light Fantastic" fame), however, failed his admirers last pay night when he suddenly "went off the air." Rumor has it that he retired, but a complaint on the following morning of a painful face, proves that lie met with a little opposition at the height of his broadcast.

Players present were McCauley, Barnes, Ja'mes, Easton, Livingston, Horsfield, Collins andc Leventhal, but as Eastown and Collins were the, only bowlers, they had a very tiring time keeping. the ball up to the other players.
