February 13 1919

I am expecting orders to go to the 3rd Division in Germany as the Colonel has recommended me as a battery commander in the Army of Occupation.  This Brigade is being demobilized and the Colonel goes home on a month’s furlough.

 

It is a bit too cold here. Everything is frozen hard.

 

We are going out pig sticking on Saturday, which promises to be rather amusing. It is rather a shoot in the French manner, as the French here get them up, and go out armed with guns, knives, swords, revolvers, and trumpets.
