Humour Hunt

A Christmas-leave story from Danny Arntsen of Delisle, Sask.:

I was orderly sergeant at Debert, N.S., when the regimental sergeant major asked my advice about a telegram he had just received from my friend Blacky.

The telegram said: “Please grant three-day extension of leave. Sister in hospital.”

I assured the RSM my friend wouldn’t lie and the extension was granted.

When Blacky got back to camp I asked him how his sister was getting along.

“Oh, she’s still in hospital,” he said. “She’s a nurse.”
