Dear Mum & Dad,

I am well. Hope youse are too.
Tell me big brothers Doug and Phil that the
Army is better than workin' on the farm
- tell them to get in bloody quick
smart before the jobs are all gone!
I wuz a bit slow in settling down
At first, because ya don't hafta get outta bed until 6am.
But I like sleeping in now, cuz all ya gotta do before brekky
is make ya bed and shine ya boots and clean ya uniform.
No bloody cows to milk, no calves to feed, no feed to
stack - nothin'!! Ya haz gotta shower though, but its not so bad,
coz there's lotsa hot water and even a
light to see what ya doing!

At brekky ya get cereal, fruit and eggs but there's
no kangaroo steaks or possum stew like wot Mum makes.
You don't get fed again until noon and by
that time all the city boys are buggered because we've
been on a 'route march' - geez its only just like walking
to the windmill in the back
paddock!!

This one will kill me brothers Doug and Phil with laughter,
I keep getting medals for shootin' - dunno why.
The bullseye is as big as a bloody possum's
bum and it don't move and it's not firing back at ya like the
Johnsons did when our big scrubber bull got into
their prize cows before the Ekka last year!
All ya gotta do is make yourself comfortable and hit the
target - it's a piece of piss!!
You don't even load your own cartridges, they comes
In little boxes, and ya don't have to steady yourself
against the rollbar of the roo shooting truck when you reload!

Sometimes ya gotta wrestle with the city boys and I
gotta be real careful coz they break easy
- it's not like fighting with Doug and Phil and Jack and
Boori and Steve and Muzza all at once like we do at
home after the muster.
Turns out I'm not a bad boxer either and it looks like
I'm the best the platoon's got, and I've only been
beaten by this one bloke from the
Engineers - he's 6 foot 5 and 15 stone and three
pick handles across the shoulders and as ya know I'm
only 5 foot 7 and eight stone wringin' wet, but
I fought him till the other blokes carried me off to the boozer.

I can't complain about the Army
- tell the boys to get in quick before word
gets around how bloody good it is.

Your loving daughter,

Sheila
