A TREASURED possession of a Glasgow nurse who served at a base hospital during the last war is a tiny piece of indiarubber common to the pencil case of every schoolboy of the 1914–1918 era. The rubber belonged to a private of the Gordons found wounded at the edge of a shell hole two days after the item “Western Front Quiet Last Night” appeared in home newspapers.
