AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Awoken by a Padre, a fatigued soldier is reluctant to attend a church service and suggests a coin-toss to decide the matter. The Padre, aware of the soldier's sleight of hand, tosses and wins. The soldier is glad he lost the toss though when, during the service, a German bomb destroys the area where he had been sleeping.
