Cath, Daphne and Max’s Salad Roll.

freshly-made-roll-veg-177Cath Wing collapsed while making sandwiches in the Old Guv Canteen in King William Road.
Michael “Bulldog” Byrne related this story to me recently at The Bunyip, in Gawler, where we work. He actually witnessed this incident back in the early 1970’s.
While making the lunch orders Cath Wing collapsed on the Canteen floor, clutching her chest. Daphne her offsider, was quick to the rescue!
Leaning over Cath did Daphne ask the question that any caring person would ask in those circumstances…
No! it wasn’t, “Are you OK, Cath?” OR
“Shall I call an Ambulance for you Cath?” OR
“Can I help you Cath?” OR any other number of caring questions….
…..Leaning in closer to listen to what could possibly be Cath’s last words.
Daphne asked, “This is real important Cath.” “Does Max Gill have tomato on his Salad Roll?”!
“As Cath laid there clutching her chest, she squeezed out the words, ‘Yes, Daphne, Max does have tomato on his salad roll!’

  1. The Bulldog never lies, Sleepy!
    He is pissed off, though, because while talking with him today he said that derwombat has left off the very last line of this story, which is:
    “As Cath laid there clutching her chest, she squeezed out the words ‘Yes, Daphne, Max does have tomato on his salad roll!’
    So, please amend this fine piece of Guv history, derwombat – or the Bulldog won’t be happy!
