Jack's Diary

The diary of Sergeant Samuel John "Jack" Drew M.M., August 1918 to January 1919.

Location: Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

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 7 - August 23 rd

Friday 23rd Aug broke in upon us with a shock as Fritz came over in the night & dropped bombs on some Tommies' horses & killed 26 & wounded 12. Awfully clear night & the old bounder could easily see where they were dropping their bombs. Expecting a stunt tonight. Rather a dull sort of day so we do not expect our usual lofty visit from Jerry.

Wednesday 23rd Aug is another unseasonably warm day in Brisbane. Up early, and over to the office to catch up on things. Mrs D starting to feel better now.
