CORPORAL 55TH BATTERY, C.E.F.


– Le Caporal –

Tremble! ye signallers, every man,
Under the glance of Corporal Dan!
Brand new clothes from tip to toe,{{subst:--}}
{{subst:--}}All dressed up, and no place to go{{subst:--}}
Looks like a scarecrow up the line
But back in billets it's polish and shine.
{{subst:--}}When the photographer turned his crank
Dan struck an attitude{{subst:--}}"beaucoup swank"
Exposed his flags and stripes and knife,
And the camera took him true to life!

France, May, 1918D.C. McArthur
