"WE DON'T SALUTE; WE CANNOT SHOOT." [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 8 March 1940

DON'T SALUTE; WE CANNOT SHOOT."     In irony and parody, the old A.I.F. sang the song' of "The Ragtime Army". but they would be the first to maintain that. it was only a song. On the subject of saluting, the advice of spokesmen of the old A.I.F. to the new is set out in "'The Australian Soldier's Pocket-book," a copy of which is presented by the Returned Soldiers' League to every member of the Second A.I.F. embarking on act- ive service. "Salute all officers who wear' the King's uniform. Don't say 'Australian 'don't salute.' They do, if they are keen soldiers. You don't show your independence by not salut- ing; you display slackness." There is a tradition that the salute originated among the British race in a sign given by Highland clansmen to strangers as a token of' friendly in- tent. The Defence Department li- brarian (Mr. R. K. Peacock) believes that the present form of salute orgin ated in 1874. Before that date various regiments had various forms of s...

Panton Hill Fire Brigade's Good Save When fire broke out on Mr. Gold- man's property on Goldman's Road on Monday afternoon, only the prompt and efficient attention of the Panton Hill Fire Brigade prevented it extend- ing to do untold damage. It is thought that the- fire was   started when some feathers which were being burned were blown about by a gust of wind. Mr. A. Duff, First Lieutenant, of the Brigade, was first to report the fire and in quite a short space of time 26 members and the full equipment were transported to the scene. For- tunately the wind had dropped, and the fire did not, travel as fast as it otherwise would. The fire began at about 4 p.m. and the brigade, under Captain A. Mot-   schall, were there until late in the evening, and spent several 'hours there next morning to make sure that it did not blaze up again.   In this the first fire in the district for this season, the efficiency of the brigade was amply demonstrated, whi...
