Eau-De-Cologne as a Beverage

Eau-De-Cologne as a Beverage.

I have stated that the canteen did not open till gunfire at noon. It was a very difficult task for those who felt out of sorts in the morning, after imbibing rather freely over night, to procure a "pick me up;" so, if sufficient capital could be procured, a bottle of Eau-de-Cologne would be purchased, which seemed to answer much the same purpose, but I think it was more intoxicating, and those using it would be very flushed in the face, and attention would soon be drawn to them on that account.
