January 24th, 1942

Arrived at Brisbane, Queensland, and we got some ice cream and milk. I drank two imperial pints. I don’t think anything ever tasted as good. Then we got some different food and supplies and today was the first real meals I had – two of them – and more milk and ice cream and cigarettes. Williams brings us cigarettes every day – one pack a man – which don’t last long, because we hardly sleep, so we smoke. This guy and Father Shanahan are wonders.
