When the jungle was cleared, it had to be burned. On one occasion, after it was fired a breeze sprung up, and drove the flames down towards a little thatched building near the canteen. I saw the flames almost touching it, and high over it. If that building caught, the canteen would go too, and then, if the wind increased, the whole barracks!
I had ordered the bugler to sound the assembly, and then I prayed, 'Lord, change the wind.' Instantly -
After the ground had been levelled, the re was one thing more wanted for a good cricket-
Last of all there was the rolling of the ground. This was done by means of a large Government roller, which had been used with bullocks for the parade ground. My men soon got it on the cricket-
The men themselves took very great interest in their gardens. The once gloomy barracks were now brilliant with color.
Officers of the American, French, and Austrian navies, who came to call on us, were much struck by the appearance of the barracks, and could hardly believe that it had been done by them themselves assisted by some men with local skills
