'Twas drizzle, tending to showers the whole time. Still had a good time, though.

Great story about the diary.

‘I’m staggered’: Family see soldier’s WWI diary, 106 years after death

The nephew of an Anzac soldier killed in World War I says he was staggered to learn of the existence of a war diary, which was handed to him at Melbourne’s Shrine of Remembrance on Saturday.

The diary of Morris Milliken was found among the papers of another Gallipoli veteran, John O’Callaghan, by Mr O’Callaghan’s great-grandson, who traced Mr Milliken’s relatives.
Malcolm Milliken, 81, who travelled from his home in Nelson Bay, NSW, to Melbourne to accept the diary, is keen to find out more about Morris Milliken, the uncle killed at Gallipoli before Malcolm was born.

Morris, who came from a farming family in Tatuanui, in New Zealand’s north, wrote in neat cursive script, but the diary captures the precarious nature of life at Gallipoli.

On June 25, 1915, second lieutenant Milliken writes about washing his kit, and writing to his mother.

The next day, he reports that a fellow Auckland Mounted Rifles soldier was killed. “A shell went right through him before bursting.”

On June 17, Mr Milliken told of the enemy, the Turks, lobbing shells. One colleague is killed by shrapnel and another badly wounded.

Got a wheely walker localy  for Mrs Edz from a pay it forwards  FB site . Her mobillity issues means getting down onto the beach [ Fraser
] and other places are a drive in the truck and even then she's too unsteady just with a walking stick ..................

Sooo Improvise Adapt and Overcome ....  A golf Pro mate hooked me up with some old plastic Golf cart wheels and I reckon it should turn her wheely walker into  pretty stable  sand buggy .. Now to drill some holes and adapt them .  8)

Did look into Wheel barrow wheels Birdman, but Nixxed them for being a bit heavy and having to pump them up .

On a side note Im smiling and in shear disbelief at how quick Amazon deliveries are, Ordered a solar reg two days ago and sitting on the door step today ..
Same with the Battery mob we got a second lithium battery from,  Ordered late saturday handed over at the door today .. Ebay is like watching the grass grow waiting compared ..

Bought this little bad boy yesterday, $299.00
18V Chain saw, 250mm bar.
Nearly paid for itself today, needed to cut a few 90x90 cca pine posts, didn't need to be a fine finish on the cut.
