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 19-20 - October 4th

Friday Oct 4th dawned nice & mild. Rose at 7am & cleaned up ready to meet the Battn, but a runner brought word to pack up & go to the Battn, so we had our dinner & made way for the mob. On our way over we had to pass through a Yanks camp & they made us stop & play for them. They gave us a good old drink of coffee. At last we arrived at the Battn & found a camp for the night. Played a programme for the boys. Day turned rather dull towards evening.

Wednesday Oct 4th grey skies in the morning. The threatening storms did not develop into rain last night. Usual trip across to the office.
