Letters Home

A well-known Highland Regiment had acquired a wide-spread and well-merited reputation during the war for exemplary conduct both in and out of action. Among their almost legendary virtues was included the regularity of their letters home, a subject on which they were unmercifully chaffed by the other troops in the locality.

One night as the Scots were coming out of the line they were met by an English regiment and the usual exchanges began.
    "I hope you have written your old 'mither' tonight Jock" shouted one of the Englishmen, to the accompaniment of loud guffaws from his fellows.
    "Ay, ay" returned Jock quietly "but dae ye nivver write yirsel?"
    "Sure, Jock, sure" replied the Englishman "three times a day after meals."
    "Aweill" replied Jock with a glint in his eye " the next time ye write hame, mind an tell her ye've seen the sodgers!"
