I am probably one of few that remember this joke from The BBC sitcom called Dads Army (about the British home guard in WW2).
Capt. Mannering told it of a young Australian arriving at the front lines in WW1.
Story line was of a general boosting moral in the trenches before the troops go over top.
He spots the young Aussie and asks..
Well son..did you come here to die?
Long pause for affect and then....
"No mate i got ere yesterdie"
If no one else remembers that show I guess i am older than i think i am
