Item 03: Gordon Macrae diary, 20 January 1917-18 April 1918 - Page 122
March 1918 April
Monday 1st April
Got 1 letter only in the Australian mail from Doug. Cant understand why some letters have not arrived. 2 mails have been missed now. Usual morning work. Went to the picnic in the afternoon. There were 14 or 15 of us at the Pyramids altogether & we had some good fun & took plenty of grub etc. Felt very tired when I got home.
Tuesday 2nd April
No further particulars as to the casualties in the Regt have been received, but Corp Marriott who was to have relieved me here is in hospital.
