Tuesday 9th March 1915

Washing up. Parade 11am. Ordered to scrub hut out, and then put equipment together. Everybody dissatisfied. Won’t get good results unless are more decent to men. Working everybody to death doing fatigues and squad drill etc., which know is useless.
11-12am Company Drill under Jarrard. Did quite well.
Afternoon bayonet drill under Sgt Major Marsden. Everybody keen. Enjoyable. Practised point, parry, thrust, pointing at sacks on run and the  at wooden posts. Very exciting. Sgt Major pleased.
In evening played bridge and pingpong. 3 ships sunk, 27 out of crew of 28 in 1 drowned.
