Harry Lennox of Vancouver, who says at 86, he’s “still picking them up and putting them down,” has been a Legion padre for 57 years and is honorary chaplain of the British Columbia Regt. in whose 2nd Bn. he served in the Second World War. He says the following incident occurred in Witley Camp in the First World War while he was waiting to go to France as a signaller:

A young soldier was doing time in the clink as prisoner No. 150. He cleaned huts all week. On Sunday, 150 was ordered, with the other prisoners, to fall in for church parade. The chaplain said: “We will start the service with 150, Art Thou Weary.”

“You’re damn right I am,” called out 150. He was returned to the clink.
