Sat 15th
This morning I took a walk over to the 2nd & fixed up the matches for tonight then went to Bde H.Q. to see Capt Hudson about a tarpaulin that was promised for the floor of the ring;
Went to the 3rd Regt. & got ropes & put them up this afternoon, & have been constantly on the go all day to get things in order; feeling rather weary by tea time, & bath after tea freshened me up, went to the stadium & had some good contests on board;

Col Meredith (Brig) acted as timekeeper; Capt Arnold as referee, & three judges, Lt Nelson 1st Lt Booth 2nd & Capt Bernet 3rd; The 1st contest was McKenna 3rd v Currey 1st a win to Curry on points Lord beat his man on points & Jenkins lost his fight after a good go. both these being lightweights; I met Mercer of the 2nd Regt in the middleweights
