Newfoundland At Armageddon

“I've put my bag in our tent. Tonight I'll be sleeping with nine others, including Edward. The training has started: we have just four weeks to turn into real soldiers and future heroes. I hope the food is good because I work up quite an appetite going through all these outdoor exercises.”

“I can't wait to have a real rifle instead of the fake wooden ones we use in training. Our uniform is very classy. But it weighs a ton, especially with the kit you put on your back. We don't have our hats yet. We'll get them in England they say. We really want to look like proper soldiers.”

“We've been training for 3 weeks now. It seems we never get to rest but you should see my muscles! I'm finally adjusting to the pace, even becoming a bit of a sharpshooter. It's almost time to march – left, right, left, right, left, right. In a couple of days, we march to St. John's and get on the ship. That will finally be the beginning of this big adventure!”
