    ANZACs. Empty ANZACs.

    Post by Campbell Brodie on Sat 17 Mar 2012 - 16:57

    Letter home from new army recruit. (Got this from Kev ANZACs. 294053457 ).

    Dear Mum &

    I am well. Hope
    youse are too. Tell me big brothers Doug and Phil that the Army is better than workin' on the farm -
    tell them to get in bloody quick smart
    before the jobs are all gone! I wuz a bit slow in settling down at first, because ya don't hafta get outta bed
    until 6am . But I like sleeping in now,
    cuz all ya gotta do before brekky is make ya bed and shine ya boots and clean ya uniform. No bloody cows to milk,
    no calves to feed, no feed to stack -
    nothin'!! Ya haz gotta shower though, but its not so bad, coz there's lotsa hot water and even a light to see what
    ya doing!

    At brekky ya get
    cereal, fruit and eggs but there's no kangaroo steaks or possum stew like wot Mum makes. You don't get
    fed again until noon and by that time
    all the city boys are buggered because we've been on a 'route march' - geez its only just like walking to
    the windmill in the back paddock!!

    This one will
    kill me brothers Doug and Phil with laughter. I keep getting medals for shootin' - dunno why. The bullseye
    is as big as a bloody possum's bum and
    it don't move and it's not firing back at ya like the Johnsons did when our big scrubber bull got into their
    prize cows before the Show last year!
    All ya gotta do is make yourself comfortable and hit the target - it's a piece of piss!! You don't even load your
    own cartridges, they comes in little
    boxes, and ya don't have to steady yourself against the rollbar of the roo shooting truck when you reload!

    Sometimes ya
    gotta wrestle with the city boys and I gotta be real careful coz they break easy - it's not like fighting with
    Doug and Phil and Jack and Boori and
    Steve and Muzza all at once like we do at home after the muster.

    Turns out I'm not a bad boxer either and it
    looks like I'm the best the platoon's
    got, and I've only been beaten by this one bloke from
    the Engineers - he's 6 foot 5 and 15 stone and three pick handles across
    the shoulders and as ya know I'm only 5
    foot 7 and eight stone wringin' wet, but
    I fought him till the other blokes carried me off to the boozer.

    I can't
    complain about the Army - tell the boys
    to get in quick before word gets around how
    bloody good it is.

    Your loving
