Bernard Scanlan - Fighting with Americans
Huge numbers of Americans and our fellows, of course, being old timers, got into no end of strife with them. There was a lot of unpleasantness there, even among the officers. Big punch ups.
To be truthful, it was something that a lot of us always avoided. If they went into town and started drinking, well, it wasn't everyone's aim to do that, and the younger fellows were a bit weary of this, and although it was a period of two weeks there, they did get into a lot of trouble. I realised that, because fellows were coming back to camp after a blue in town.
