January 31, 1899

Reveille at 4.15 am. We were prepared in light marching order at 5.15 a.m., but recalled at 6.15 a.m., which was followed by inspection by Major Lime at 7 a.m. We were called to arms at 10.30 p.m., but recalled at 11. Called again at 11.30 p.m., which turned out to be a false alarm.
