SOLDIERS WHO DON'T EAT SERVIA'S WONDERFUL ARMY. IRISHMEN OF THE BALKANS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 4 November 1915

SOLDIERS WHO DON'T EAT SERVIA'S WONDERFUL ARMY. IRISHMEN OF THE BALKANS. A torrespondent of the "Times" who was lately In Servla sava that a most remarkable thing Is the capacity of the Servian soldier to live and light gaily with practically nothing to eat. "It is a peasant army," the correspond ent adds, "and in the best of times its food is of the simplest—broad, pota toes, and curded rallk, and rarely, ex cept on feast days, a little meat. Bread is the staff of life In the real sense. "For four years Servla has been al most continually at war. It is difficult for the women, with all the men in the ranks, to keep up the agriculture, and the country has become poor to a de gree iiot known iu years of bad crops in congeBtod districts of Ireland.. The soldiers havo been Inured to a life of extreme privation. While fighting last winter It was their toughness and their ability to withstand hardships that gave them tho advantage over the Austrians. I have repeatedly heard Servian offic...

"Yes, it is mov ing," he insisted, "a man is in it." Ab wo got up to investigate out crept a shabby-looking Russlnn soldier. He smiled at our surprise, and then salut ed. He was a vouug fellow of flvc-and-1 twenty, with a very intelligent face, eyes full of vigor and joy; In fact, the | most sympathetic Russian I ever came across. Ho said something In Polish,...

SING'S CENTURY. AUSTRALIA'S CHAMPION SNIPER. Value of Marksmanship. ANZAC, September 15. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 4 November 1915

SING'S CENTURY. AUSTRALIA'S CHAMPION SNIPER. Value; of Marksmanship. ANZAC, September 15. Australia's champion has just notch ed a century. He Is the proudest man In Gallipoli, for his score Is now 100 not out.. I don't mean 100 runs. We've for gotta'A all about cricket here, though some of our crack fieldsmen do catch the Turkish bombs and whip them back into Abdul's trench. I refer to Trooper \V. K- Sing, of the 2nd Light Horse Brigade, the champion sniper of the Allied army, who, during the 15 weeks we have been iu_ Anzac, has accounted for 100 Turks. Of course, during the rapid firing at night or in any of the attacks he may have accounted for more. But since Billy Sing has settled down to systematic sharp-shooting he has seen 100 of the enemy fall to his rifle, and in every case he has had an offi cer or non-commissioned officer to spot for him. The tally is absolutely correct. Unless the marker with the telescope sees the man fall Sing can not count it a bull's eye. Sing is we...
