Under the heading " Plucky Deeds " writes a correspondent. { This is to do with the Boer War }
" I saw an Australian stripling on the field who had taken a man's part in the fray at Caesar's Hill, for there were many boys on both sides in this bloody feud. This was little Jack PLUNKET, a Queensland boy, from Roma, and one of the best horseman in South Africa. He and another lad-- both of the Imperial Light Horse-- lay behind the same rock, watching three Boers, who were just as carefully watching them, and shooting even at a finger if it came in sight. Each of the youngsters got his man, the third being killed by a flanking shot ".
