Item 02: Walter Bruce Rainsford diary, 1 January 1915-31 December 1915 - Page 163
May. 25 Tue.
Have been issued from Quartermaster's store with 3 prs. socks & 1 pr. puttees - the first re-issue of clothing since enrolment; but at same time not exactly necessary – have plenty of togs, pretty complete outfit.
Issued with khaki helmet with blue &
back black diamond shaped cloth badge on side. Seems to be an Imperial idea to do away with the slouch hat.
Went in to town to-night with "Snow" Freeman for a couple of hours.
On return wrote a couple of Scout letter - and then feeling snoozy–woozy Off to bed.
