18.9.45. Horrible weather & mud. Eggs & butter breakfast, meat veg & all the rest for tiffin & tea. Drew pay book at last. My vaccination has “taken” & is sore. Should be glad to get on draft now. Wrote letter to Carrie – properly marked on envelope etc. Hope the others got home as well. Chaps in from Korea – some got quite good time up there. I still think POWs in Formosa had worst time. In Japan, for many, there were good opportunities for stealing grub at the godowns.
