Through Sandwich, Deal and Dover and back through Canterbury East Station through to Sittingbourne which is not far from Chatham Dock Yds. Here we split up into single companies and marched out of the town. When we got into the country Lieut. Tyson told us our duties. We had to guard the roads against Motor Cars with big head lights as it was Kaiser’s birthday shortly and Zeppelins were expected. The first night we slept in a huge barn. The names of the party were as follows:- Lieut. Tyson, Sergt. Lee, Cpl. Donan, Rigby, Topping, (Officers Servant) Punch and Sid, Wilson, Frank and Billy Williams, Troughear, Marland, Charlie Morton, Jump, Alec, Salmon, Harry Fox, Tom Phillips, Jack Pointer, Billy Thomas, Stirk, Jack Crebbin and Jimmy Wynn. We were a very happy party. I had a couple of cold guards in the night. No guard during the day and Billy Williams and I spent it in Sittingbourne.
