Good Friday, April 2, 1915: Revallie at 6a.m. and marched off to Church service at 7.15a.m. The R.C.’s had to go at 6.45a.m. Gen. Bridges, Brigadier McLauren and all the Staff officers were at our service. It did not last long and we came back for breakfast at 8.30a.m. We then had breakfast. There is leave for 30% of the Batt. but I did not go out. After dinner I went over and paid four peastres for a hot bath. Sent Mim’s present into the post by McCann. The rumour that we are going next Tuesday seems to be all over the camp. A terrible riot in town tonight between the redcaps and the Australians. One Aust. and one redcap was killed with a lot of wounded. We have just got 30 hours to pack up and get ready to get away. All the boys came home drunk, except Hobart.
