After dinner I planted Ranunculus bulbs for Bertha then dug the last of the potatoes up & sowed oats over the ground & forked them in. Down to chess at night with nephew Kemble & played our Secretary Clemas & beat him. .

Spent most of the morning burying my mule. ... The N.C.O. who caught me when I capsized that wagon some months back was killed last night, poor chap, and buried this morning.

Anzac Day - cold, wet & generally miserable. A big sports meeting was held on the promenade deck but quite spoiled by the weather.

My wounded mule is developing tetanus and must be shot. I just now went to say good-bye to him but he gave me such a piteous glance that I had to beat a hurried retreat. ...

Carting lumber from a battered brewery in Mailly-Maillet. The place is deserted save for soldiers. A fine church has received some hard knocks, and most of the buildings bear signs of bombardment.
