Klappentext

Excerpt from Oh, Canada!: A Medley of Stories, Verse, Pictures, and Music Contributed by Members of the Canadian Expeditionary Force

Oh, canada! Is not put forth as the most scintillating example of the literary and pictorial talent of the members of the Canadian Expeditionary Force. As a rule, our efforts at scintillation are somewhat hampered. Cases have been known where quite witty jests have suddenly lost their point, or been supplied with a new one in the shape of a 59 (essen). Cold feet also is a complaint unfavourable to humour. Wherefore it is alleged that most of the current trench jokes and dug-out drawings are done in London ats by junior members of the War Office Staff. We cannot vouch for this. All that needs be said, gentle reader, with regard to the present olla-podrida, is that it is an attempt to round up a few scattered details and form them into an active unit. The appearance of oh, canada! Will not, we trust, interfere with the vigorous prosecution of the war. The Somme will duly be set on fire, but copies of oh, canada! Will not be used as incendiary ammunition. It may cause a few momentary misgivings in the breast of Little Willy; but, on the other hand, it will probably confirm all General von Bernhardi's calculated Opinions of our Colonial futility.
