    DiLuzio, Sr. To pick up the victims who fell off the cliff with the ambulance down in the valley. The next video shows the dummy swimmer who faked a robbery in Rio. We all of us—on the hill and in the village—bolted like rabbits and took what cover we could. They were, of course, at once secured and treated as ordinary prisoners of war. To do it properly one needs india-rubber soles or bare feet, for boots cause one to slip wildly about on the smooth, rough stones.

    If mistakes occur on one side they may occur on the other. We had a couple of cooks. In short, it is believed that quite three-fifths of those who perish on a battle-field die from loss of blood. In fact several of our men whose patrol-beat covered this ground told me it was terribly trying to walk among these rough and ready graves in the heat of the day. Now it is almost impossible to render a Mauser bullet "explosive," owing to its extreme slenderness, so that any explosive bullets which may have been used by the enemy must have come from sporting rifles, which are—as all evidence goes to show—extremely rare in their commandos. These small trenches were separated from each other in order possibly to avoid that appearance of continuity which would have rendered their detection more easy to our scouts.

If shrapnel shells burst well, some thirty yards in front of the enemy, the force of the bullets released by With Methuens Column on an Ambulance Train book explosion is terrific; if, on the other hand, the shells burst high up in the air, yards in front, you might almost keep off the bullets with an umbrella; and one sometimes hears of these missiles being actually found in the pockets of combatants. Apart from these liquid comforts, which were, very properly, restricted in quantity, those of us who possessed any ready money could purchase sundry provisions at two stores in De Aar. Any one who is accustomed in England to the conventional " Saturday to Monday" or the "shooting week" in a country house opens his eyes with wonder when he receives a warm invitation from a colonial to spend a month with him at his house on the Karroo. It is of course very much harder to hit a moving enemy when you aim from above at a considerable angle than when you merely hold your rifle steadily at the level of his chest and fire off Mauser cartridges at the rate of twenty a minute. The chocolate rations consist of three cubes and can be eaten in the dry state; once, however, I came across a spare emergency tin, and found that with boiling water a single cube made enough liquid chocolate for ten men, a cup each.
