13th November (1918)

Whole morning at a colossal church-parade-thanksgiving-service, attended probably by the whole division, held in a large natural amphitheatre – the bishop, or whoever he was, standing up a small hillock in the centre.  Aeroplanes were whirring about overhead the whole time, we could hear absolutely nothing.  At noon our O.C. addressed us on the situation and somewhat cleared the air.  If he is right we go to Germany only until the armistice (36 days) is completed, when demobilization will commence.

After all, if it does not delay our return, it will be something to have crossed the Rhine before the actual signing of Peace.

The N.Z. infantry are kicking up an awful shindy about going to Germany.  I think what they object to is marching all that distance.
