The longest day and incidentally the wettest and coldest.  We have moved into other huts.  They are similar to those in N.Z. camps but have stoves in the centre.  You would hardly credit the fact that in choosing the drafts for France they allow men to stay behind because they play cricket or play in the orchestra or band.  It passeth all understanding.  There are here a number of men who have been drafted out of hospitals, so we hear something at first hand of conditions at the front.
