September, 1915
Sunday 19
This is a Teetotal shop & today I sent a nigger to an Hotel (open on Sundays) for a bottle of Johnnie Walker, gave him a small bag to put it in so as O/C would not see it.-
My consternation nigger returned still with the bag in one hand& the bottle in the other - Officers take it in turns to provide stimulants – as you know I'm not keen on it; hence the yarn.
Some of these subalterns never had so much money before & they make regular fools of themselves & all not fit to lead horses to water others the best stuff in the world.
