September 15, 1918
A beautiful day. Busy all the morning going through my section gear making up a list of shortages for the new Q.M. Had a bath during afternoon and read some papers - a good afternoon’s rest. Rumours of us going in again. Latest official figures of Yanks’ stunt is 20,000 prisoners and the British since Sept.1st have taken another 20,000 odd, good going.
Billy Hughes drove past yesterday and meeting some of our chaps shook hands all round, he is very enthusiastically received. During the day we had some balloons brought down, I saw two but rumour hath it that the number was 3. Splendid mail in from Aussie, 11 letters and a parcel from home, a real treat, a bright moonlight night so expect the boches.
