In commemoration of a little incident at Raddow Ct.

1. Ah me, to think that we who held so good a name

should "carry on" and bring this ward to shame

Although the thought fills me with much regret

That "night of nights" I never shall fight

2. 'Twas state of war and pillows filled the air

excitement was intense- and not a care

In the hard worked lady who slept near me ward

All we seemed to do was make discord.

3. Midnight came- the noise still not abated

Can you wonder friends why we are hated

But after this we'll try to do our best

To give Gertrude and ourselves a little rest

                   Ward 5

                  Raddow Court

The following tender sincere apologies for creating the

above incident:- Pte. A. Stags    Pte. H. Garment

                              Pte. W. Rowe    Pte. S. B. Day

                                    Pte. W. Mc Lay

[next page]

There are different ways of doing things

As everyone supposes;

Some girls turn up there sleeves to work

While some turn up their noses

               J. Muskeld

                Brookfield

             Latchford

                GCt 5 ch 1917
