Sunday 5th March
Received message this morning asking me to call at Gen. Hobb’s Head Qrs. tomorrow at 11.30 to meet General White. I hope therefore that all Artillery appointments will be settled finally. Called on General Monash, Col. Glasfurd and Col. Glasgow re drivers, gunners, fitters, smiths etc. for transfer to 4th Divisional Artillery. Discussion with Gen. Monash re Officers Club. I informed him the Artillery had so much to do in reorganising that we should have no time to participate.
