Army Headquarters, Ottawa 1961 Card covers Very Good 8vo. 
This manual supersedes Artillery Training, Volume 6, Pamphlet No. 3: 1952. 8.3 x 5.3 inches. x, 122 pages including 39 plates (many folding) plus blank leaf "restricted" for notes at rear. Clean and unmarked; no odor. Also included is the sheet with one side type-drill "Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of the party" and on the other side what appears to be an original song poem (I can find no reference to it elsewhere): The Gun Numbers Song. It begins : Now number one is in charge of the gun, / And this is what he must do. / He listens to the GPO and passes all the orders to the crew. / (Chorus:) So Come and join the Artillery / You'll have some fun when you fire the gun / In the First Field RCA / {then follows 6 four-line stanzas the last of which is:} Now Seven is the 2 IC / He sets the charge and fuse / And runs the old fuse setter / And drinks the Sergeant's booze. The gentleman from whom we purchased this volume was a Major in the 52nd Battalion, 1st Field Regiment, R.C.A.
