10 March 1916

Posted by Dick on March 10, 1916
A very hot morning, and I spent most of it getting ready for pay and payed out at 11 o'clock. I was camp orderly dog today, but there wasn't much doing.

There was a shower of rain for two or three minutes this morning, it was rather nice and freshening.

The R.A.M.C. have got a monkey for a mascot; whenever anyone goes near, it runs out of the tent and climbs up onto their shoulder. It tried it on with me this afternoon, but when I saw one flea appear on my hand, I'd had about enough.
