5th to 8th March (1918)

Quack round early and after remarking that he could work up as good a cough for “purposes of demonstration” told me to keep indoors, so I cleaned the hut up whilst the rest paraded in marching order.  Pay day again and a half holiday, but I went to the dentist and had three fillings put in.  Carried all our belongings out into the paddocks and scrubbed out the huts with disinfectant to try to rid the camp of the influenza colds that are rampant.  Went to assistance of water-cart stuck in mud.  When it did get out the horses started off at such a pace that one of them struck his head in the ground and completely turned turtle and we left the concern in a worse mess than we found it.
