I missed this post from my Great Grand Uncle's WW I diary, so I am posting it late.
I left for Finner Camp in the advance party. Finner is in Co. Donegal, an ideal camping site, as the soil is very sandy.Our first experiences of soldiering left nothing to be desired, as our daily training included a bath until the weather got too rough. We were in tents and experienced some very rough weather, as we were on the coast of a very wild part. Our training continued steadily and we had some very nice route marches to neighboring towns, including Ballyshnnon, Bundoran, and Beleek. We remained in tents until the December 3rd.
