Dodging bullets

Sue Flannery and caretaker of her grandfather’s war memorabilia Trevor Brooker and the Dutch bibleTrevor Brooker is big on history and war memorabilia so when he was given a Dutch bible from the Boar War he was thrilled.

The book belonged to Sue Flannery’s grandfather Robert Scobie who was killed, along with 2000 other Australians, at Lone Pine during the First World War.

It is 100mm thick (four inches in the old scale) and is very ornate and held closed by two locks.

“The interesting thing about the book is that there are two bullet holes though it,” Trevor said.

“It was kept in a saddlebag which also had the same bullet holes through the front.

“I believe the book was a souvenir from the Boar War which went from 1899 to 1902 where Robert fought.”

Scobie saw active service as an officer commanding B Company 4th Infrantry Regiment in the war and was promoted to captain.

The bible, written in Dutch, is a combination of the old and new testaments and was published on January 28, 1851.

The book, along with numerous other war memorabilia, will be donated to the Dungog Historical Society to be displayed in the museum for their World War 1 centenary display next year.
