Meal since we left England & managed

to perfection also had a good wash the

first for 2 days as it is impossible to

get one in an Indian Train they are only

like boxes on wheels

 

Dec 5th 1914

Had Breakfast at Raipur. Made a good

meal off Bread Jam & Tea. Stopped at

Bilasyer to wash & fill our water bottles with

fresh water. Arrived at Paraghat where we

passed the Munsters going to the Front. Passed

the second lot of Munsters at Naila.

arrived at Raigarh where we had Bread

Tea Meat & Cheese. Arrived at Bisra where

we all got out of the Train & waited

for the 1st Border Regiment going to the

front & there were great cheering on both

Sides.
