Lloyd E. Lawrence Sr
AN AWESOME AUSSIE EXPERIENCE
During a period of celebration over the downing of “A Bed Check Charlie”, Boney walked into a huge tent club, and saw a large portrait of Queen Elizabeth hanging over the Australian Army’s bar. The whole crowd in the tent-bar (in concert) began a backward count down from ten to zero.
“O.K., Yank, you just insulted our Queen. Ya didn’t uncover your stupid Yank head… so you have two choices! One, you can get your ass kicked by the lot of us, or two, you can buy every mother’s bloke a round of drinks!”
Boney was broke but smiled and yelled at the bartenders to set them up. While everyone was intent on getting their drink, Boney slipped out the side flap on the tent and ran back to the safety of his Squadron area. He never visited the Aussie Club again.
