of Dunleath, SK. The bolt twisted the walls, reduced furniture to rubbish,
and scorched every electrical wall switch. Every window was blown outwards,
scattering glass 100 m. A cabinet's doors were broken into fine splinters
and china and glassware dumped nearby. Trinkets and photos sitting 1 m away
were untouched.

tugged, the soldiers pulled, the boot came clear, and the sandwiches were
delivered. All dikers cheered.
