Canterbury at 7.50 and didn’t get back til 3 and had nothing to eat but I made up for it and so did Stan at 14, Seymour Place. Hurt my knee against bolt of my rifle when jumping over a broad stream so paraded sick next day and got put on light duty for a while, counting ammunition.
Dec 4. Paraded for pay and went into town after tea to do a bit of shopping after which Stan and I went to the pictures.
Saturday. Knee still stiff so stayed in all day and enjoyed a good rest. Was inoculated for the 2nd time in the afternoon. George Barnes came in at night and had a game of whist with Mr. Colbran, Stan and I. He’s 21 tomorrow.
Sunday. Chest a bit stiff, but went a walk through the Hop fields with Stan. No morning parade to-day.
