nice night and when on guard one could go in to the boiler room and have a chat with the fireman and a warm at the boiler fires. Taking all into consideration, we spent a most enjoyable night and got back to Seymour Place with a good appetite for breakfast at 8 a.m.
Sat Dec. 12th. No morning parade after the guard of the previous night. In the afternoon we all paraded and marched to a field at the top of Hollow Lane for football. I got on one of the sides. Lieut. Tyson was on our forward line and though we got beaten 8 -2 it was a good game. We played with the ball sent from Harford Street. Went to the pictures at night.
Sunday. Wesleyan Church, parade in the rain. Stayed in rest of day.
Monday 14th. 2 mile run in the morning.
We spent a most enjoyable night
