here we were welcomed to Burma by

some of the Big men of Rangoon & each

man was presented with 1 cigar 1 box of

matches & a Rose. I think the best of all

the journey was when they brought in the

bowls full of Roses they were the finest

I think I have ever seen & The smell was

lovly. Then we went back on the Boat &

for Dinner we had Dry Bread & Tea & for

Tea we had Bread & Gravy. That might we

again slept on the floor.

were the best & best arranged since we

left Southampton we had Breakfast on

the boat, but Dinner in the train & for all

It is difficult to get ready in a train we

had a first class Feed.
