November 15 Friday
Sister King - Carney - BobTown & I went into London to celebrate the festivities a bit & then go to the Queen's Hall in the evening where Australia was having her evening – Mr Hughes I thought spoke well – kept mainly to facts – Mr Joseph Cook also spoke about the work the Aus. Navy had done & to my surprise he told us that the first shot that was fired in the war was by an Australian in Aus. waters & one of the last was by our flying Airmen.
