Thursday, 2 January 1919
Posted notes yesterday. New Year passed all right after all, a good deal more talk than anything else. Officers Mess Tent was cut down last month & a drunken Corporal tried to get men to raid it. We drill over the old Rafa Battlefield but it is hard to recognize country again. Big engine shed, Water Towers & a [indecipherable] Beersheba Railway came in on the old line of Trenches. We have had the wooden crosses repainted & an officer & men have gone to Gallipoli to do the same thing there. Frank Chase & Trooper in 6th L.H. came over for a year last night. His brother Lyle died of pneumonia.
