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.

Page 31 - December 24th

Tuesday Dec 24th dawned fine & bright. Put in about 2 hours practice in the morning, & at 1 o'clock we went to Franslay to play for No.1 Company's Xmas dinner. Very cold. Played 'Lost Chord'.

Sunday Dec 24th also dawned bright and unseasonably slightly cool. Good morning for just lazing about, but there are preparations to be done for tomorrow's Christmas lunch. Very little cooking involved, which is good.
