20 December 1918; Friday

Up at 6.15 and on parade. Received parcel of shortbread from New Zealand1. Off at night and had walk with Harvey.

  1. ALL’s uncles, Charles Poulter Linfoot and his brother William Gaylard Linfoot, and their families, emigrated to New Zealand on 25 July 1912. The diaries record occasional correspondence with family in New Zealand, most frequently with Hilda Tate Linfoot, Daughter of Charles Poulter Linfoot and therefore ALL’s first cousin. Perhaps it was she who had sent the shortbread?
