The diary of Sergeant Samuel John "Jack" Drew M.M., August 1918 to January 1919.

Location: Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Over 60, with a son 32 and a daughter 22. Retired on 26 October, 2007, after 37 years with the company. No matter, I've led an interesting life with much travel in Southeast Asia, the Pacific Region, and a little bit of Africa.

Page 3 - August 13th

Tuesday Aug 13 found us up & at breakfast at 7:50am. After that we went out all day on a salvage party to a place called 'Hamel' & after gathering salvage until 4pm we decided to make tracks back. After arriving back & having tea, we came over to the Battn & played for an hour or so for the boys. Another nightly visit from Fritz but no harm done. Another grand day.

Sunday Aug 13 saw me up at around 6:00, which is a little later than usual. Morning paper full of woes, as usual. Not much good news being reported. Today will be spent changing handles on a chest of drawers - the originals were, to say the least, substandard, and the search for suitable replacements has been long and complicated. In the afternoon, Mum back to Toowoomba. Not a bad drive, as drives go, but getting out of the car at the end is becoming more and more difficult. Look after your your knees - you'll miss them when they've gone.

At least you're not suffering from a regular visit from Fritz ...
