The " place of skulls " was far away, And life is strength and youth, The guns were calling night and day, I wondered which: was truth.

In the thickest of the fray; For Honour, KingF, and Country, They wori that Fatal Day. Now, when our boys had-landed, Right at the Turks did go; Tlhey never flinched; but went right on To Vict'ry they've proved so; They fought writ!l Buillddg courage, From trench to trench did go, To fight for good old " Britain" And to lay the Turks out low.

WASTAGE OF HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Broadmeadows Camp Sentry — 3 August 1917
WASTAGE OF HORSES. London, 1st August.--In the House of Commons Mr. J. .L Macpherson stated that 250,000 horses and mules had died in the various theatres of war, being 16 per cent. annually of the total number. Commercial firms estimated that the wastage in peace time was 20 per cent. The army losses, therefore, were moderate, and were better than in any campaign in history. Five per cent had died in America before shipment owing to influenza and pneumonia.
A DULL CAMP. [Newspaper Article] — Broadmeadows Camp Sentry — 3 August 1917
A DULL CAMP. The boys who come into Broad meadows from other camps say that the place is dead. There is no doubt this statement carries a certain &nbsp; amount of truth. There is an amuse- ment committee in camp, but they seem to stick to the one thing, i.e., concerts and picture shows. Why a sports meeting, being contest, bil- liard tournament, etc., could not be included in their programmes is hard to fathom. These pastimes are healthy and correct, and should be fostered. Men would find less neces- sity for dodging out of the camp every night if a change of programme now and again were given. The fact that every single man in camp pays i/- a. fortnight towards amusement &nbsp; should ensure a more varied pro- gramme. Let something be done here as in other camps. At Maribyr- nong they are up-to-date, and surely we are not going to play second fiddle to any camp in Victoria. There are plenty of athletes in our midst, and we hope to see our amusement com- mittee annou...
SOCKS FOR SOLDIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Broadmeadows Camp Sentry — 3 August 1917
SOCKS FOR SOLDIERS. Collingwood branch A.N.A. have 190 members on active service, and when, two months ago, the oficers suggested a knitting competition to ensure a satisfactory supply of socks for its soldier members no one anti- cipated the result that has been achieved. In that time no fewer than 400 pairs have been knitted by womenfolk who put the suggestion into practical form. At Collingwood Town Hall illuminated addresses were presented by the Chief Presi- dent, Mr. M. Davine, to the women who had knitted five or more pairs. There were 50 recipients of the lodge token. An evening competition was held in connection with the appeal, and Mrs. Ludeman, of Preston, estab- lished what is said to be a great re- cord by knitting 12½ inches of sock. in two hours, for which she received a special prize.
MOTOR TRANSPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Broadmeadows Camp Sentry — 3 August 1917
MOTOR TRANSPORT. By "Petal." At last we see a change in our mess-room. The orders are: Parade to your allotted seats, remove hats at the table, and see that the mess orderlies carry out their duties. The change is welcomed, and it now re- mains with the boys ,to abide by orders. We are also pleased to see Driver Crawford flying two stripes. Good boy, Sid. One of the N.S.W. boys with us was heard to say that Broadmeadows was like a home with the fire out. Is he homesick? During the week a football has been noticed among the M.T.S. and A.S.C. boys. Why not form a team and get busy? Last week many- of the M.T.S. boys had to part with their good friends (stretchers), as the order of the day was that all stretchers had to be re- moved from tents. Just because some men wiould not be tidy we now wake up with our eyes full of sand. Norman, fronr the office, has the job of allotting week-cend duties. We all think of Norman when we hear our names read out. ' The boys of the M.T.S. are pas- si...

INCREASED ALLOWANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Broadmeadows Camp Sentry — 3 August 1917
INCREASED ALLOWANCES. In regard to the increased allow- ances now payable to returned sol- diers prior to discharge it was ex- plained by the Director-General of recruiting that it would be impossible to make the arrangement retrospec- tive. The allowances are being paid out of the funds controlled by the State War Councils, and only apply to men who have not been discharged. The date of enlistment is immaterial; any man now in the forces being en- titled to the increased allowance on his return from active service. After discharge the returned soldier be- comes the responsibility of the re- patriation trustees, and the extra allowarice paid by the State War Council ceases.
RE-EMPLOYMENT OF FIGHTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Broadmeadows Camp Sentry — 3 August 1917
RE-EMPLOYMENT OF FIGHTERS. According to the view of Mr. W. M. Hughes, the Prime Minister, em- ployers who refuse to reinstate for- mer emnployes who have returned from the war should be put in the public pillory. Mr. W. G. Mahony asked Mr. Hughes, in the House of Representa- tives, if he had had his attention drawn to a statement in the Sydney "Daily Telegraph " that certain busi- ness firms were refusing to reinstate returned soldiers. Mr. Hughes stated that he had not heard of the cases mentioned, but would be glad to learn the names of these firms. He did not know whether there was any power vested in the Government to deal with them, but they should, at least, be put in the public pillory, and the people would know what their patriotism was worth.

THE MUD HE LEFT BEHIND HIM. By One of the Boys. We used ter growl about the bloomin' sand in Sinai (Afore we crossed the sea to sunny France). And weren't we pleased, not 'alf, ter leave the burnin' cloudless sky, I'd double back there now if I'd a chance. No, it ain't the blanky Fritzes that has got our danders riz Nor his whizz-bangs, minniwerfers, nor his crump And it ain't the vaunted Prooshan Guards - I tell you what it is!

NO MAN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Broadmeadows Camp Sentry — 3 August 1917
NO MAN'S LAND. No Man's Land is an eeric sight At early dawn, in the pale grey light; Never a house and never a hedge &nbsp; In No Man's Laind from edge to edge. And never a living soul walks there To taste the fresh of the morning air. Only some lumps of rotting clay, &nbsp; That were friends or foemen .yester day. What are the bounds of No Man's Land? You can see them clearlly on every hand; A mound of rag bags, grey in the sun, Or a furrow of brown, where the earthworks run, From the eastern hills to the western sea, 'Through field and forest o'er river and lea, No man may pass, but aim you well, And death rides across on the bullet or shell. But No Mans Land is a goblin sight When patrols crawl o'er the dead &nbsp; &nbsp; of' night. Boche or British, Belgian or French You dice with death when you cross the trench. When the rapid fire flies in the dark, Flits down the parapet, spark by spark, And you drop for cover to keep your head, With your face...
WHO'S WHO. [Newspaper Article] — Broadmeadows Camp Sentry — 3 August 1917
WHO'S WHO. Down in the recruits there is one Private C. P. Cayzcr, of whom the 'Herald' of 17th July says: &nbsp; &nbsp; 'Charles Pelham Cayzer, a mar ried man from Kyabram, has become a recruit and has gone into camp. His father. John Cayzer, late of North Melbourne, was first cousin to Sir Charles Cayzer, baronet, of Glasgow, millionaire, shipowner, and founder of the 'Clan' line of &nbsp; steamers, a noted philanthropist. who died recently leaving an estate worth £2.175,000. Lady Jellicoe, wife of Sir John Jellicoe. and Lady Madden, &nbsp; wife of Rear-Admiral Madden, are both daughters of Sir Charles Cay zer, and, therefore, second cousins of this recruit. Sir Charles Cayzer's three sons are serving with the British forces. and each hold the rank of captain'.
POLICE SENSATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Broadmeadows Camp Sentry — 3 August 1917
POLICE SENSATIONS. During the week the police force in Victoria has received a very hard blow through alleged serious charges being laid against quite a batch of the 'boys in blue'. In &nbsp; Brunswick, Fitzroy. and South Mel bourne constables have been arrested or suspended, and the whole force is smarting under the stigma. Like every other body of men, it would be hard to have them all angels, but a policeman ought to set an example in. keeping the laws of the country - not breaking them. It only goes to prove that a man's life and liberty are at stake when a policeman has a taint, more especially the greed of gold. Good luck to the Police Chief for his efforts in purifying the force. May he succeed. If he would get educated men instead of - a lot of dunces he would find the public would pay the force far more respect than at the present time. Some of the men now in the force should be driving bullocks - they missed their avocation, sadly. Not only this, but quite a number...
