A little over due, but here’s the strip for Sunday, 26th August. We don’t need to know everything the Soldier went through, so we’ll just have to take what he decides to tell us, eh?

I don’t know which Australian soldiers took part in that cricket match on Shell Green back in November, 1915, but in this case, knowing they were Australian like the Soldier, the ‘we’ of his comment, is enough, eh?

The Turks didn’t interrupt the game, either. From all accounts there was deep respect between the two armies, both just there to do their jobs. By November, I think both sides were just trying to keep their heads down as much as they could.
