Item 02: Walter Bruce Rainsford diary, 1 January 1915-31 December 1915 - Page 27
Jan. 9 Sat.
Attended physical drill at 7 a.m.
Sea a trifle rough with the result that I "fed the fishes" twice and felt a bit off during the morning.
During the day read over some shorthand and learnt a few points about the typewriter. Have resolved to study on board :-
(1) Military books, regulations, etc.
(2) The Remington typewriter and all about it.
(5) Books on other educational subjects.
Sea much calmer in the evening.
