THE 84TH REGIMENT LIFE AT MUNGARI. [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 19 December 1916

THE 84TH RECIMENT   LIFE AT MUNGARI. Life at Mungari, where the 84th Regiment is in training, has settled down to a steady routine of drills with happy go-lucky intervals be- tween. The evening relaxation   shows but little signs of the day's exertions. "Lights out" at 9.45 marks the end of a mighty round of amusements beginning with football just after tea, and ending with games, singing, and chatting in the tents. The Y.M.C.A. and the can- teen are hives of activity after the sun goes down, and the camp, with its medley of sounds, takes on a picnic aspect that the daytime does not give, when khaki-clad squads are moving about close at hand or in the adjacent scrub. The inevi- table rivalry between the companies is already keen, and the different units swing to and from the parade grounds conscious that critical-eyes are looking for faulty dressing and slovenly marching. Improved bear- ing and appearance are but natural under such conditions. The men see l...

TONGRAH HARBOUR CO. Hobart, Dec. 15. The annual meeting of the Tong kah Harbour Tin Dredging Co., held in Hobart to-day, was well attend ed 'by shareholders. In moving the adoption of the re port, Mr. Ashbolt, the chairman of directors,said the general manager's report on boring operations . proved the existence of a strong, well-de fined run of Dayable ground about a mile in width.

SOLDIERS AND BEER [Newspaper Article] — Western Argus — 19 December 1916

SOLDIERS AND BEER "I want to sar a few words about the Y.M.C.A.," remarked Viscount French recently in London, while I performing the opening ceremony at a new Association Lounge. "I re member many years ago, when I first joined the army, the only refuge a soldier had was the can teen. In those days we had old sol diers who practically lived on beer. It was quite a common thing for an old soldier to sell his dinner to a recruit and buy beer-and live on it. "I think it is something like 35 years ago that the Y.M.C.A. cornm menced its splendid work, and I think the change that has- come over th, tone of the personnel of the army in that time has been little short of miraculous. You hardly see a case of drunkenness in the army now. It was when I was Commander-in-Chief in France for some eighteen months that I really sawv what the Y.M.C.A. had done for the soldiers. It was on the blood-stained fields of battle that the troops showed what different men they were. This war has need ed mor...
