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 14 - September 11th

Wednesday Sept 11th found us up at 7am to play Revellie after which we had breakfast. Parade at 8:30am & then cleaned our instruments & shed. Practiced in the afternoon & played for the Blue Gums in the evening.

Monday Sept 11th started out wet after a wet night. Drove across to the office, in rain all the way. Car behaving itself, so it seems as if the gunk poured into the cooling system on Saturday is doing its job in sealing the pesky cracks. Showers cleared after about midday.

Anniversary: Today is the 141st anniversary of the death of Jack's grandfather, Edward George Drew, in Illogan, Cornwall.
