Roaring Betting Trade
Kokoda Track On Cup
An AIF sergeant is doing a roaring betting trade in his spare time along the Kokoda track on the Melbourne Cup. Bets totalling hundreds of pounds are pouring in from points as far forward as the front line. The bets range frm 10/- each way to £20 straightout. Many bets are made on the IOU basis, but these are only accepted from troops known to the sergeant.
