Monday 3 February 1919
Field Officer on arrival. Just read a letter from a Colonel's wife re experience on the transport to Colonels. Saloon had a fancy dress dinner & in the middle of it a bucket of slops was dropped down the skylight & a hose was put through one of the port holes & half drowned some of the passengers, nice!!!
Letter from Mother & Day Dec. 8th – you had just received my first cable saying I was coming end of January. Papers also arrived, many thanks.
The foregoing rather strengthens the Padre's opinion, eh?
