22.12.15were transferred onto the the troopship Hororata & a beauty she is too they were expecting us on board early & had dinner ready for us but as we did not turn up it was thrown overboard, we made the best of a bad job & had some dry bread & a little later some soup was brought along there is something like 2000 troops aboard the majority I believe are New Zealander MR the whole of the 1st LH Bde are on board;
About 40 bags of mail turned up for the 1st L.H. Regt last night but only one or two bags were sorted out before we left.
