Bad Shooting

During the war the work of the Home Guard sometimes had its amusing moments.  In one of the outlying districts the volunteers were for the most part miners, many of whom had never before handled a gun.

A new recruit arrived for his first night at target practice.

He fired half-a-dozen shots at a 100 yards and was wide with every shot.  He was given another half-dozen attempts but was wider than ever.

At last he stood up, threw down his rifle in disgust, and convulsed the Company by demanding "For guidness sake, gie's a stane!"
