Well given that its ANZAC Day, I thought that Id add something from Grandad Syds War Journal which I have slowly been deciphering its quite interesting, lots of time spent in egypt swimming listening to the radio and reading before they were shipped out to Italy. Since were going to egypt soon im quite keen to see some of the places that he writes about. Well the Journal entry ive included is from 25 April 1943.
Tuesday 25 April 1943
"Had a latt and cleaned up gear messed around all morning. Went for a stroll then to dentists to get things polished, went for stroll then listened to radio till 8.30. Bed about 9. Lovely day bit sunburnt."
So its not the most exciting entry in the journal but it gives a good idea about how the average day was.

Unfortunately with winter coming on, I have caught my garden it the end of its long summer life but you still get a good idea of how it went. The Tomatoes are delicious I will be sad when they are all gone for the year, it means I will have to buy them from the supermarket. I will make a paste with the chillies so that should last me to the end of the year when I can grow some more, and looks like we will be having alot of pumpkin soup. I also have onions, silverbeet and plenty of herbs, as well as some kumara and potatoes.

Of the 30 kms of track we managed to get 12kms in the mini truck which would leave 18kms to walk next time we come back, we will also need to bring a few other things on our return visit like a truck with balloon tyres.
