June 16.1000.] UNDER THE UNION JACK. 767 THE D PISA P E A RING IRISHMAN .“Tommy” kills the tedium of camp life in many ways, abut favourite game is to get a soldier to equip himself with a hard felt hat and a beard, and ensconce himself in an empty barrel. Each time he bobs up his head his comrades “shy” sticks at him, the prize being a cigar if they hit him. The man in the barrel judges when it is time to bob up by peering through holes in the barrel. The Empire’s Forces in South Africa, illustrated in “THE TRANSVAAL WAR ALBUM.”
