'SANDY MAC the sniper is a-sniping from his loop-hole,

With a telescopic rifle he is looking for a Hun.

If he sees a sniper lurking, or a working-party working,

At once he opens fire on them, and bags them every one.'

‘Sniper Sandy’ by Ewart Alan Mackintosh (killed 21st November 1917 at Cambrai)
