WHO GOES THERE? SENTRY UNHEEDED. MAN SHOT IN THIGH. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 31 October 1914
WHO GOES THERE ? SENTRY -UNHEEDED. MAN SHOT IN. THIGH. Many people in Australia regard a sentry as a mere figurehead, and that his position is not to be seriously considered. Stories related from Queenscliff, where sentry duty is:carried out in the strictest manner, go to show that there at least the sentry has commanded the greatest respect, both from civilans and the military forces. This has been brought about by the sentries, who refused to submit to any tom-foolery from either friends or strangers. A man named Brown was shot through the thigh by the sentry on duty on the H.M.A.S Cerebus,. which is anchored in the bay off Port Melbourne. It. would appear that on Saturday morning just before three o'clock the sentry observed a boat approaching under sail, which, by the way she was sailing, could not possibly clear the ship. He hailed the boat several times to keep off, and the caretaker of the Cerebus also ~iledd but the boat did.not\put aboti'': Owing to ithe size of. the boat a...

V.R.C. SPRING MEETING.. DERBY TO-DAY. CUP RACE ON TUESDAY. - BY STERLING. It takes more than ordinary eventualities to suppress the ardour of the racing public, and although the war and drought has of course had its influence more or less on most things, they do not appear to be responsible for decreased interest in the great spring carnival, which commences to-day at Flemington. Visitors from every State are here, and although the "squeeze" in most lodging hostelrys is something short of the usual Cup season, there is every reason to believe that the attendance at Flemington, given decent weather, will be up to the average. Port Melbourne is always well represented during the Cup carnival, many residents giving vent to their sporting propensities on this occasion alone. When it is all over they "button up," win or lose, until the Cup comes around-next year. A pleasant way of reaching the course from Port Melbourne is by motor launch-from the lagoon, via thg Saltwater river. Mr. R. ...
