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 33 - January 1st 1919

- 1919 -

January 1st dawned upon us rather mild but cloudy. Last night the boys had a bit of a kick up & unhinged a few gates, rolled the old Mayor's roller into a pond, put his pig in a cask & put the cow in the pig sty but never did any damage. Today was a holiday for all hands, so after dinner I went to Saint Maxent to see the 41st but found they were away at Abbeville & had been away for about a week, so had to walk back again - arriving just in time for tea. Had tea & then developed a film.
