November 11th 1918
Following wire received at about 0730 hours this am: "Hostilities will cease at 1100hours 11/11/18 AAA Troops will stand fast on line reached at that hour which will be reported by wire to Army HQ as soon as possible AAA Defence precautions will be maintained AAA There will be no intercourse with enemy until receipt of instructions from GHQ AAA Further instructions follow AAA"

Needless to say we are all tickled to death and there's been all sort of celebrations during the day. Whale of a blow out in the officers mess last night. The next question is when will we get home.
