Private G Hogg


Claro Times 3rd April 1915

Private G Hogg, one of the first Canadians to be at the Front, and who is now in hospital with a poisoned heel, sends home to his friends the following, which he entitles "A Game of Nap", composed by him and some comrades in the trenches :

I'll go one says Austria;

I'll go two, says France;

I'll go three says Russia,

Because I'll stand a chance.

I'll go four, says Germany,

And wipe you all from the map;

But they all dropped dead when Brittania said

"Lor' Blimy, I'll go nap!"
