Tough nut

Posted: January 22, 2015 by tripmanic in 1914

We have a man in our company who has only been on parade the last four days since we have been here. He has put in his time either absent without leave, or in the “Boob”. Well tonight he had a few drinks, and got the idea into his head that he was to be sent back to Australia, and he reckoned he was going to do something desperate if he was not prevented. He came to me and went down on his knees and asked me to put him in the “Clink”. He didn’t care what charge he went in on, but wanted to be sent there anyhow. I bluffed him once or twice, but at last had to take him to the quarter guard and get them to keep him there all night. He was quite happy when I left him. He is about the toughest nut we have.
