 Information, transcribed below in square brackets, is printed in the diary at the bottom of the right hand page and refers to a printed illustration of a soldier in uniform at the foot of the opposite page. 

[WHAT THE SASH MEANS. Have you ever seen a soldier with a bow of black silk worn on the back of his tunic? Do you know that it is a relic of a bygone custom of the seventeenth century. The "flash," as the ribbons are called, was used to keep the tunic clean, for hair in those days was heavily powdered and greased.

In the old days, soldiers as well as sailors used to wear pigtails. Except for the "flash" of the Welsh Fusiliers there remains nothing in the army uniform to remind us of the fighting days of long ago.]
