GWL 6th February 1916

A lovely day and joy of joys a whole holiday.  Nothing to do, but pay out and see the rifles.  It is a wonderful view from my cave.  Right and left a lake and in between a plain about 3 miles across and then the hills begin again.  If I had a camera, I could take a photo just the same as that one we took from the balcony in Kyoto.  This time to-morrow I shall be full of cholera germs! Dead ‘uns”.

It would appear that George is due to receive a cholera vaccination.  The editor is unable to find any references to cholera vaccination in the First War.  The initial attempt at cholera vaccination was by Jaime Ferran in Spain in 1885.
