After the Armistice

December 18, 1918

Excerpts from the diary of Green Howards soldier, Stanley Harrison, spanning Armistice day 1918 to the first peacetime Christmas for four years.

Dec. 18th Finished carpentering.  Very “nippy” morning.  Indoor life not suiting me.  NACB fags arrived.  Yards of rumours flying about, mostly on the great question.  When shall we see dear old Blighty again?  Spectacled gentleman comes into violent contact with earth while giving exhibition skiing.  Nearly busted with laughter.  So did all present.  Afterwards he falls from ropes and causes a dint on his head, also cutting hand.  Truly he is in unlucky way today.
