27 “THE O-PIP”
Since we are forbidden to send any souvenirs home, we beg to submit a few ingenious ways for the use of German trophies:—
Helmets—square head variety—Can be used as wash-basins, flower buckets or to weigh down gun trails.
Boots—Once properly treated to a dose of creolin, the leather can be used for fly-swatters and the nails for cobble stones.
Tunics—To frighten babies with.
Badges—For sniping rats.
Aeroplanes—One to be given to each recipient of Blighty leave.
Hats—Make fine pin-cushions when stuffed.
Cignet Rings—To replace broken links in head chains.
Star Shells—As cigarette lighters.
“Duds”—As paper weights.
Gold Watches—As poker chips.
