RM of North Qu'Appelle No. 187
Transcript of audio excerpt (edited by Interviewer): E- "...And so this would’ve been Fort Qu’Appelle again?" A- "Yeah, definitely." E- "And do you know what’s off in the distance there?" A- "It actually looks like a building. Well, there’s a tent there. …The one that I noticed was the rifles, or the units’ rifles are all put together like that with a chain around so they can’t be stolen. And I had an old gentleman tell me one time, he was in the British army in India, and they were fighting Indians out there. They were put together so they couldn’t be stolen, but the bolt …can still be taken out. And they were still being stolen in that formation, or whatever, so they had to take the bolt out at night, and sleep with it next to their skin, so they couldn’t steal the rifles… So when I saw that piled in that formation, I was thinking that’s not the best idea in case it rained. You need a tarp over it or something."
