Troops at seaPost Card – L H M Tunisian
Canadian Overseas Expeditionary Force
We are lying at anchor waiting for the other transports to turn up. Four have arrived already. We do physical drill twice a day 10-12, 2-4. Most strenuous and back breaking. Swedish drill contraptions for standing on our heads. I get up at about 5.30 and watch the sunup – chase around the deck and finish up early worms. Reveille goes at 6.00. break at 7.00, Guard 8.0 … 9, parade 10, eats 12, parade 2, eats 6, below 9, lights out 9.15. A little swarm came alongside today and went round the boat. The boxing gloves are a boon and we had a little round before supper.

Letter – Just a line – September 28, 1914
Just a line in case this letter gets to you before I do. We all go slowly. We are in fact, in Quebec now, waiting for the other transports. I will apply for leave as soon as possible to see you and Viola. It will be hard to get I expect. We have got cruisers to look after us. I am as fit as a fiddle. We do drill twice a day and get up at 6 o’clock, lights out at 9.15.
I heard from mum. Hugh. All letters happy Post Card – H M Formidable – January 14, 1915 to OLC Saw this the other day in a sailing boat. We tootled around the harbour for a couple of hours. Very busy at present “under instruction”.
