[Sunday 16 July 1916]

60 cases of Tucker to keep Fit Men FIT, were distributed today. Tinned Fruit Pickles & all those things a School boy likes , we are only a bit overgrown
We have to thank those good women who went thro' the ordeal of the Queen business I suppose for swelling the funds to send this stuff along.
Boxing Competition last night but too hot, anything to change the men's thoughts from Stand to Arms etc etc.
A dozen mouth organs & a concertina or two would amuse them.
You would be surprised on a moonlight night to hear the Music that is knocked out as the men Ride along when "all clear" & going back to Camp
