Quote: Unknown Soldier

When he wasn't saluted by an Australian soldier, Lieutenant General William Riddel Birdwood (above), British commander of the Gallipoli forces, asked the Digger if he knew who he was.
"Not a bloody clue," he said.
"I'm General Birdwood".
The Digger responded: "Then why don't you wear feathers in your arse like any other bird would?"
