wet etc, here & so we are all issued with new imperial boots, which are infinitely thicker & heavier than the Australian issue. They have steel horse-shoe heels steel toe-caps as well as a large number of large headed nails & are very hard on the feet but will stand any amount of wear & bad weather, They are particularly meant for service work in France.
The evening was spent in Salvation Army hut, but being too tired to write we turned in early. Being now financial we can treat ourselves to a little light supper each evening; this usually consists of tea & cakes & is very nice after the day's work. A good hot shower helped to drive out the evil effects of the previous evening's trip & the three Australian letters warmed up our hearts ere our eyelids closed, so today wasn't so bad after all.
