[Sunday January 23 1916]

Church Service today by Rev Capt Gordon a first rate Padre I think Dean of Goulburn. I could not help thinking how much better our men look as Troopers with leather equipment riding Pants, leggings & Spurs instead of the Permanent rig-out of the Infantry. It is hard work to make the average Bushmen march he slouches along with head down, but on a horse looks comfortable so different again to the Tommies who bump along
Cold frosty night again & Days bed soks were are a great success-
Volunteers are asked for the Camel Corps, many of our men have offered- in ignorance a good deal, but distant fields etc .
