Hunting for mud bricks. Bourke came up and visited us at 12.00pm (‘straha’, meaning ”break’).

Quote of the Day (Matt) ‘Harrison, release the boulder’ as Bourke was halfway up the Tell and within earshot

PM. Beers whilst telling Methodist jokes to other volunteers and listening to funny stories from Bob Stone (a trench supervisor) about his days as a teacher at Poultney Grammar, a posh private school in Adelaide, and how he used to piss the Headmaster off (who regarded him as as a communist and radical) by inviting Don Dunstan to talk to the students who turned up wearing his pink shorts, and for telling a student who asked him what he thought of ‘free love’ ‘well, it’s better than paying for it’ which was promptly quoted in the school debate.
