Just as the order reached us along came a whiz-bang and burst.
Suddenly—“whiz-bang, whiz-bang” right at the door of the dugout.
"Yes, up went my little 'and like a whiz-bang," announced Bindle.
It would have taken a "whiz-bang" to catch up to me that day.
The "whiz-bang" starts with a rough whirr like a flushing cock partridge, and goes off on contact with a tremendous bang.
Well, over the top we went and we got to the place he had pointed out; we had barely lain down in a shell hole when whiz-bang!
We had almost reached the front lines when one of our officers got hit in the face by a piece of "whiz-bang."
It covered us with dirt, and we had hardly gotten the dust out of our eyes when whiz-bang!
