Diary Entry - 8th August, 1918

A beautiful day for the show, a lovely bright sun which made the wagons and horses look topping. Naturally, there was great competition for the best wagon team and turn out, which was the second event, and it was funny to see the wagons being put together on the ground so as no dust would mar the appearance of the vehicle. Brig General Ironsides and Colonel Parrie were the judges, the former was very thorough,, even looking at the men's respirators. We won three of the five events with the turn out of team and wagon, best turned out NCO and the jumping won by the Major. These results thoroughly held up the belief in the battery that we are first in the brigade, also the division.
