Over 60, with a son 32 and a daughter 22. Retired on 26 October, 2007, after 37 years with the company. No matter, I've led an interesting life with much travel in Southeast Asia, the Pacific Region, and a little bit of Africa.

Page 6 - August 20th

Tuesday 20th dawned cool and raw, & at 7:30 we were up and had breakfast & after the usual clean up, we went on parade at 9am. After parade we were put on cleaning up the camp. As usual the Lieut spotted some iron on the roof of our dugout & pinched it to make a cookhouse but we were given a trench shelter so we started to make another roof. After a good afternoons work we fixed out little home up & made things nice and comfy & settled down to the evening.

Sunday 20th, and I slept in a little longer than normal. Today, back to Toowoomba for another couple of days' mother sitting.
