The Kia ora coo-ee : the magazine for the ANZACS in the Middle East, 1918


"Haka": "Camouflage" was a little brown mare, with an ear always full cock for shells. One afternoon, when we were camped down the Auja, I saw her give a practical demonstration of taking cover. We were just leading off to water when "Jacko" began to put over a few of his best and brightest, "Camouflage" had a man, a horse and a donkev in tow; after the second shell she rid herself of the two former, but the latter was more securely attached and became her unwilling partner in the half mile scramble to cover. I arrived a poor second, to find "Camouflage" crouched against a big rock in the bed of the Wadi and doing her best to nersuade the donk that crowding behind' cover was not permitted.
