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


"Ephraim Flaxstick": "Gallop!" theatrically shouted the "Fighting Major," and the W.M.R.R's. drove through the standing grain and dismounted for action at the foot of one of the initial ridges fringing the Mountains of Moab. Horseholders took over and we toiled up that hill onets fixed, and one in "the spout." We gained the crest to be greeted not by the "rur-r-r" of "Jacko's" mitrailleuse, but by a chorus in good old Bow Bell Bells' English. The Tommies had jumped our claim, and as they prepared for the next ascent, (they hummed and sang and whistled: "Another little ridge won't do us any harm!" They belonged to the Londoners, about whom there appeared an appreciation in a recent "K.O.C."), and this is their Divisional chanty now.
