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 18 - September 26th

Thursday Sept 26th broke upon us nice & clear. After a clean up & breakfast, we had the usual parade & came back to our billets to practice & continued all day. I played with the 44th band at the "Blue Gums".

What Jack doesn't tell here is that the 'usual parade' was another standoff between the boys and the Colonel. This incident was a frequent Sunday lunch story subject during my youth.

Tuesday Sept 26th was a gloomy sort of day, but only scattered showers and none at home or at the office. Toowoomba started level 5 water restrictions today, meaning that with meaningful rain the town will be out of dam water in two years. Not good.
