War Diaries – 21st Bn. CEF

21st Bn, CEF-Tuesday, October 29, 1918

On October 29th the Nursing Sisters of No.1 Canadian Casualty Clearing Station were invited to dinner and eight were free to accept our humble hospitality, for of whom were old friends of the Battalion, having crossed with the Unit on the Metagram from Canada almost four years ago. Other guests were Capt H.M.Wallie, M.C., Captain T.C. Tidy and Lieut. O.Menpes, M.C. After dinner Bandmaster Huncey, who had just recieved some new music, favored the party with a series of Waltzes, Fox-Trots and One-Steps which were greatly appreciated. The strict orders of No.1 Canadian Casualty Clearing Station were responsible for an all too early termination of the party.
