Diary Entry - 12th January, 1918

This appears to be a similar entry to yesterday's so possibly my grandfather has lost a day somewhere:

There was a lecture on the buffer at ten a.m. by Cpt Marshall, formerly acting captain instructing at Shrewsbury, but he did not explain it half so well as the ordinance staff sergeant did in the afternoon to our NCOs. The Colonel attended the lecture and ticked off Hossack of the 15th Bty for smoking without his permission.


  1. Might 'Shrewsbury' be Shoebury [for Shoeburyness - an artillery school?].

    1. Quite possibly. My grandfather probably never saw the thing written down.
