November 23, 1918
Excerpts from the diary of Green Howards soldier, Stanley Harrison, spanning Armistice day 1918 to the first peacetime Christmas for four years.
Friday Nov. 23rd. Daybreak at 9 o’clock. Dark at 4 o’clock. No lights on ship at night – mystery. Breach of armistice terms. Stuck it well till 4 o’clock & then “fed fishes”. Feeling rotten. Terribly rough sea. Ship’s propellers out of water at times. Cold.
