played inside right with Robbie as centre forward. Got complimented on my play by several, so was very satisfied but wish we’d have won, for we were thus knocked out of the competition and we had an excellent side.
Tuesday. On armourers fatigue which was lucky, for not only was the work interesting but as we were having our rifles changed to the new style I was in a position to obtain a jolly good one with a handsome stock whereas many were old style with new barrels. This rifle was the one I kept all the time afterwards refusing to change it for the short rifles when I had the chance. It was a bonny rifle and Stan was envious for he had got a rotten one and he and very “rifle proud” and always kept his article in splendid order.
Wed. Skirmishing in morning. Football afterwards. Played for 1st versus 2nd. We won 3-1 Only a scrappy game. Scored one.
