People will want to be careful of Imposters, posing as Heroes a hateful word when bandied about –
As in Africa a lot of wasters are making back to Australia when they should be returning to the trenches –
One man with an ingrowing Toenail has never done a days work since he embarked another gone to England, one day shot himself thro' the foot. Tis true tis Pity & pity this be true.

A lot of the best men are also going back unfortunately – minus limbs & broken. They know the wasters & do not like associating with them.
