Life in the Australian
Text of a letter from a
kid from Eromanga to Mum and Dad. (For
of you not in the know, Eromanga is a small town, west of Quilpie in
the far south west of Queensland )
I am well. Hope
youse are too. Tell me big brothers
Phil that the Army is better than workin' on the farm - tell them to
get in bloody quick smart before the jobs are all gone! I wuz a bit
slow in settling down at first, because ya don't hafta get outta bed
until 6am. But I like sleeping in now, cuz all ya gotta do before
brekky is make ya bed and shine ya bootsand clean ya uniform. No bloody
cows to milk, no calves to feed, no feed to stack - nothin'!! Ya haz
gotta shower though, but it's not so bad, coz there's lotsa hot water
and even a light to see what ya doing!
At brekky ya
get cereal, fruit and eggs but there's
steaks or possum stew like wot Mum makes. You don't get fed again until
noon and by that time all the city boys are buggered because we've been
on a 'route march' - geez its only just like walking to the windmill in
the back paddock!!
This one will
kill me brothers Doug and Phil with
keep getting medals for shootin' - dunno why. The bullseye is as big as
a bloody possum's bum and it don't move and it's not firing back at ya
like the Johnsons did when our big scrubber bull got into their prize
cows before the Ekka last year! All ya gotta do is make yourself
comfortable and hit the target - it's a piece of p***!! You don't even
load your own cartridges, they comes in little boxes, and ya don't have
to steady yourself against the rollbar of the roo shooting truck when
gotta wrestle with the city boys and I
real careful coz they break easy - it's not like fighting with Doug and
Phil and Jack and Boori and Steve and Muzza all at once like we do at
home after the muster.
Turns out I'm
not a bad boxer either and it looks
like I'm the
best the platoon's got, and I've only been beaten by this one bloke
from the Engineers - he's 6 foot 5 and 15 stone and three pick handles
across the shoulders and as ya know I'm only 5 foot 7 and eight stone
wringin' wet, but I fought him till the other blokes carried me off to
complain about the Army - tell the boys to
get in quick
before word gets around how bloody good it is.
