Diary Entry - 1st January, 1917

Bee: A miserable New Year's Day, drizzling rain, a great bustle round, getting ready to move tomorrow. This afternoon we had great hopes of having the Battery photographed, but the French man did not turn up. Major Swanston came round the lines, as usual in the army for the first time, and found we had mange. We have fallen out with our old Madame in the Mess billet, over her stove, and have all to go out to dinner. The centre section are having their Christmas dinner tonight and have a splendid spread. They have been neglected rather, but I have not had a chance of helping them. Got Australian mail today.
