Toronto Star, September 13, 1915 Canada’s First Contingent had tasted its first large scale battles in May and June of 1915. Early on soldiers discovered that gum could be massaged within its sealed wrapping and applied as a wound dressing in battle. It was also chewed to keep awake on sentry duty and passed out to the troops, along with cigarettes, before they “went over the top” from the trenches to attack across No-Man’s Land. The reference to first aid may actually be referring to this use of chewing gum. Those “over there” would have understood the meaning of “Me for the scrambles now” and gum; those at home likely would not.
