18th October 1914

Sunday 18th October

Completed embarkation of guns and wagons, using our own men to work winches and slings.

Obtained sand for use on ship during voyage.

General leave to all ranks this afternoon - No Church Services on account of Embarkation duties.

In the evening I walked to St Kilda along Beaconsfield Parade, returning to Ship at 10. PM.
