Monday. 2 a.m. (11 June 1917)

After dark we passed through Bridgewater, Taunton, Bristol, Gloucester.  We are in 3rd class carriages which are almost as comfortable as 1st class in N.Z.  The food problem seems to be acute enough seeing that stuff is dearer than in N.Z., even beer and cigarettes formerly so cheap here.  Have noticed women acting in male capacities – tram conductors etc.  There are soldiers and sailors everywhere.  Just stopped at Cheltenham – the names recall English history; but the confounded darkness!
