9th Light Horse Regiment Location - HMAT A10 "Karroo", at sea.
9th Light Horse Regiment War Diary - No entry.
Carew Reynell Diary - I finished mucking out the No. 1 Hold [68 horses] with five parties of 3 to 4 men each and a party to haul up manure and had all mats taken up, cleaned and put back in 45 minutes and Scott paid up.
Each party had two vacant stalls to work on and as they cleaned them shifted the next two horses down and so on.
The record time was made by Private Hahn's party who thoroughly mucked out and swept 18 stalls which entailed shifting 16 horses and finished them in 36 minutes. This will be a ships record for some time I think.
All mucking out was finished in every hold today before breakfast but the Poop Deck was not completed - only one spare stall to about 40 horses.
A fair sea running today and nearly half down with seasickness again. Two pneumonia cases temperature down to normal and doing well. All others well.
