Christmas Eve

Posted: December 24, 2014 by tripmanic in 1914

Today is Christmas Eve, and we can hardly believe it; there is no festivity in the town at all. Our only celebrations are a holiday without leave, and sports tomorrow, also we are having puddings, which we have to pay for, by the way. Today I took a picquet to town for some prisoners. It made a little outing, the town is very dead in the daylight, it is only at night that you see the gay side.

We have to carry our packs into the desert now.

As I am writing one of the chaps in the tent said “The best Christmas present I could receive is an Australian Mail” followed by a chorus of “here, here”. Everyone is writing letters tonight.
