well in these games.
Wednesday Dec 2nd. Entrained for Canterbury. By the way a rather funny incident happened last night, I was chosen for guard under “Punch” Wilson as senior man. I was to be on guard 9 – 11, 3 – 5. I didn’t fancy the 3 – 5 business and as Punch was short of cash and I wasn’t, I bet him a shilling he wouldn’t do my guard and I lost. Being Corporal of Guard he wasn’t supposed to do any guard but only to see that we did it.
Arrived at Seymour Place alright. Surprising Stan and Mrs. Colbran. Glad to be with all the fellows again. Ben looked well and much broader than when I had last seen him.
Thursday. Dec 3rd. Long route march and skirmishing near Whitstable. Left
