ToDay is the Birthday of
Fair and cold, wind N.W.
Got up at 5 am, folded cots and blankets and put them away.
Washed up and finished dressing. Had breakfast, then got into all our kit and marched about 1½ miles to the edge of a large swamp. The enemy was supposed to be in hiding.
Took us about half an hour to work through to the other side, then we discovered some of the enemy.
We made skirmish advances and my sergeant corporal and myself got captured by a machine gunner in ambush.
At noon we saw a plane fall and kill the pilot. After dinner, we had a tear gas demonstration. Then we went back to the armory and had 2 hours of free time.
Started home at 6 pm.
