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 19 - October 3rd

Thursday Oct 3rd dawned upon us bright & clear. 8 o'clock saw us up & doing. After a clean up & breakfast we set to practice. Practiced all day & played for the show in the evening. Had orders to play the Battn home after coming out of the line. Fritz paid us another aerial visit, but as is is his usual habit did no damage.

Tuesday Oct 3rd very sunny right from sun-up. A good morning for the parade of the Broncos through the city to City Hall and then Lang Park after the civic reception. I left early for the office in order to avoid traffic problems - of which there were none, as the Broncos' parade and reception are tomorrow. I was sure it was today! Old Timer's Disease, I think, otherwise known as CRAFT.
