1st March 1917

At Kingston. The women from the liner were going ashore early this morning and they seemed in good spirits. I am told they are volunteer munition-makers, going to England at the expense of the Government. Some of our fellows went on board to fit up a gun, and they had a fine time. The liner left at noon.

Went ashore at 4 p.m. with two of the “boys” to Miss Berry’s house. We had intended going bathing but soon got settled down with singing and skylarking so postponed the bath. Not a word was mentioned on either side about the parcel we sent, but when the song “Shop” was brought out by Miss B, she gave me a long look and a smile which I could not misunderstand, and I had to laugh. We left again at 9-15 p.m. and returned on board.
