An elephant in the Chaplains Corps? Bizarre.I like a nice story. Here’s one.
My Grandparents were missionaries in Kalimpong, teaching at Dr Graham’s home. They got married in the 30’s and that being the time there were no cars so the trip from church to reception was by elephant. Apparently the wage for the elephant was a bottle of beer which he drank using his trunk.
It didn’t end well however. He joined the Chaplains Corps at the outbreak of war, was captured at Singapore and never came home. Nobody knows what happened to him but it was probably an unpleasant way to go.
