Thursday 8th March 1917

Heavy showers all day. George was not able to do anything outside besides milking the cows morning & evening.

Millie Kirwell rung me up from Te Araroa where she is waiting to go up to Auckland but the “Maku” which is expected in at noon to day, she said that Carpenter was also at Te Araroa waiting to go away, he was turned down for active service, but passed for home service.
