Notes And Queries
Interestingly, an earlier edition of the journal explained the origins of the slang phrase 'Gun Fire', detailing how it was a term for the early cup of tea served out to troops in the morning before going on first parade. In the War recruits in training always had Gun Fire supplied to them, as the work before breakfast was often particularly gruelling.
Condition of the booklet is generally good. The cover has one or two minor scuffs and blemishes, but the staple spine is intact, and all pages are intact, unblemished and tightly bound. Their is a small price sticker on the rear side cover.
