Jack's Diary

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 20 - October 8th

Tuesday Oct 8th dawned dull and rainy. The usual routine of playing Revellie. No practice this morning. During the afternoon we marched into a village called Allery for a bath. (An hours walk each way.)

Baths don't appear to feature strongly in the soldier's routine.

Sunday Oct 8th also dull, but by no means rainy. Today, visiting with my third cousin up in Mooloolaba before she returns home to New Zealand. Should be fun - time to try the bottle of Cricket Pitch merlot blend my son brought over.
