August 1917
11th We had more rain to-day & at times was very heavy. During the morning we had some Physical drill but practically nothing else was done during the day.
13th Rain has cleared & it is now quite fine. Yesterday & to-day we have been doing squad drill & bayonet fighting. Harvesting has been in progress for the past week or so & the lads have been giving the farmer a hand in the field after parades. It is quite a change & we all appreciate it very much.
14th We had more squad drill, gas drill etc etc this morning & a route march in the afternoon.
China officially declared war on Germany & Austria to-day.
