Saturday The same as yesterday Ordinary routine

Or as Raymond Ives summarized it looking back:

y-hut-witley-war-time-canada“Working early and late. Answering our names 5 mins after Reveille. Some play — Football, baseball, boxing[.]  Picture shows. “Y” entertainments. Pleasant life but fed up. We are ready.”(1)
