Item 02: Walter Bruce Rainsford diary, 1 January 1915-31 December 1915 - Page 78
Mar. 1 Mon.
Think I have got measles – very prevalent among the Troops – Face & body marked with slight rash, tired feeling, face burning & rather irritable.
Attended meeting in Melbourne Y.M.C.A. at 7.30 p.m. when 6 of us connected with the Scout Movement in Australasia decided to form an Australasian Scouts Association in connection with the Australian & New Zealand Imperial Forces.
I have got measles alright but I am not going to report it or it is quite likely that I should be left behind if No. 2 G.H. makes an early start.
