9 November 1918. Saturday. ZINJAN.

German retreat reported to be becoming a route.

Am v. busy and when one thing is settled another seems to erupt up.

Thank goodness the blockade is over. Merchants here are much pleased at this.


From Lieutenant R. H Vaudry’s Diary. Vaudry was the liaison officer for the 1/4th Battalion, who were based in Persia for the end of the war, having fought in the Dardanelles in 1916.
