Item 02: Walter Bruce Rainsford diary, 1 January 1915-31 December 1915 - Page 303
Oct. 16 Sat.
Went to the Railway Institute at Septieh after tea – a club for English railway employees & friends - A rather pleasant evening was brought to an abrupt close by half a dozen drunk Australians of the A.I.F. "kicking up a shindy". A chap feels jolly well ashamed sometimes to think he belongs to the Australian Forces.
Secured a Trooper's spur as a souvenir.
