Jack Lang - Gets stitch running for cover

Running time
57 sec
Date made
Department of Veterans' Affairs


I had a moment when the Chinese come into it they come in, we had to bolt, they come in and they surrounded us at the back and they said, 'Make it down to a cutting where the boys were forming up again'.

We took off and we were running across the open and there were bullets flying and ricocheting and I got the stitch. I went over and my mate Jonesy he stopped and he thought I was hit and I was gasping and he said 'God' he said 'Are you hit?' and I said 'No. I've got the stitch.'

And he said, 'Well let's get the Hell out of here.' So, he picked me up and we took off. Yeah it was, we were lucky to get out of it actually.
