Twentieth Birthday and on cookhouse fatigue. Blizzard during night. Ground covered with fine snow. Weather mild. Paraded at cookhouse 7am. Mended fire and told orderlies to bring 2 and 1 [   ]. Direct to cookhouse. Brekker:- sausage and bacon. After brekker, cleaned pans, washed tables, swilled floor, cleaned [knives?], fetched 3 potatoes from No. 1, told orderlies to parade with 3 [carts?]. Rotten fatigue. Jolly hard work.
