A repost, in anticipation of Anzac Day:
When he wasn't saluted by an Australian soldier, Lieutenant General William Riddel Birdwood (below), 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 your feathers in your arse like any other bird would?"
