24th September (1917)

I have been trying to remember some ludicrous mispronunciations by the men last night, one was Robing Hood, another was rhetoric used, very pompously, i.e., a certain play was very rhetoric.  The man addressed asked: How the blanket he could be expected to know the meaning of that?  There is a half-Italian here named Romano, but all the Sergeants call his name out as Romeo.  Another’s name is Sugrue, which gets much mauling, the latest being Sorgee.  Satterthwaite baffles them all.
