"Knew Their Trademark"
The Spokesman-Review, Spokane, Washington, 29 April 1915
From the Omaha World-Herald
A sentry was giving closest attention to his post in the neighborhood of a British army camp in England, challenging returning stragglers late after dark. The following is reported as an incident of his vigil:
"Who goes there?" called the sentry at the sound of approaching footsteps.
"Coldstream Guards!" was the response.
"Pass, Coldstream Guards!" rejoined the sentry.
"Who goes there?" again challenged the sentry.
"Forty-nine Highlanders!" returned the unseen pedestrian.
"Pass, Forty-nine Highlanders!"
"Who goes there?" sounded a third challenge.
"None of your damned business!" was the husky reply.
"Pass, Canadians!" acquiesced the sentry.
