19th December 1914

Mena Camp, c. December 1914 - photo attributed to 1606 Sgt Owen Kenneth
Stewart, 7th Battery - "Nearly as large as the old Brisbane Stadium and a weekly
program is put on and needless to say, appreciated by the men."  The arrow pointing
to the right indicates the direction of the 7th Battery encampment at Mena.

Sunday 19th December

Very solid day getting returns completed and seeing units fitted out with camp equipment.

Engineers erected camp cooking fire for our mess, and will erect camp oven on Monday. Gave lecture to all specialists this morning. Signalling morning and afternoon. Arabic class at night. Several officers on leave. Had ride on Jack for first time since leaving Melbourne. He is very fit. Called on Playfair at Hospital.
