21 January, ’16.
Paraded for inspection before the Colonel — all O.K. He said “Men, you all look fit and well, and are about to have the chance you have waited for — etc. etc.” Still have no definite idea of our destination.
Weather very wet and miserable. Crossing will not be much fun — sea high.
Taking only just what kit I really need. Leaving the rest in my billet till I return.
