Jack's Diary

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

My Photo
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.

Another Poem

We would send a Xmas greeting
Men on land & men on sea
Though we folks may not be meeting
Thoughts can travel far and free.
Though old England's Christmas party
May be broken here and there
Still we send our wishes hearty
To the absent everywhere.

Soldiers, Sailors, men out flying
Women nursing far away
Plucky laddies wounded dying
May God bless you all today.
May the coming Xmas morning
Be a time of gladness true
And the New Year brightly dawning
Lay a kindly hand on you.

(Undated, probably 1918)
