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.
