29 March 1916; Wednesday

On 7 o’clock parade, but left it after calling roll. On parade as usual in the morning. Half day off in the afternoon and [4-5 words deleted by ALL, illegible.] lay in bed all the afternoon. Up for tea and out last thing in the soldiers’ home. Our men paraded for overseas boots and I was told that I am not on the draft. Spoke to Sergeant-­Major Ford and he said he would try to get me there.
