2nd August (1917)

New Zealanders here are known as diggers.  Whether it has originated from the Kauri gum industry or not I can’t say.  I am now in a new hut under a N.C.O. who was in charge of the hut I was in at Featherston and there are actually with me 4 other of the men in old hut 177.  Last night had repetition of the two signallers’ boozeroo, but this time one of them (the funniest) was far too drunk to even attempt to be humourous and had to be undressed and put to bed like a bag of potatoes.
