George noted in his WW1 diary a humorous incident where he and his mates were fined for returning late to camp one night. George blames Sgt Major Notley ...
"Tuesday the 20th of June 1916 - Throwing dummy bombs for practice. Jim Richie, Fred Brooking, W. Hardine and myself were fined 7 days pay today for being half an hour late on Monday night. They have put the clock on an hour and we forgot about this. This is the first time I have been crimed in the army, and this is what a man gets for "playing the game" for 17 months. "ROTTEN SWINES". Pleasant times RSM Notley of police, if I meet you in old NZ".
