Merry christmas, peace on earth and all that
« on: November 11, 2011, 03:40:20 pm »
I just transcribed a page of H.M.S. Juno dating 24 December 1918.
They had a lovely Christmas and a high peace on earth feeling... not.

At 15:15 one marine, at 17:45 7 men, at 18:10 one man and at 22:15 nine men were placed under sentry's charge.
Must have been great celebrations  :-\

The liberty party had a great party!  The shore patrol must have been deeply unhappy at having their own party cancelled. ;D
