Fin M’s Trench Diary

16th October 1916

I hate it here all the bread is mouldy and the jam is wram. Its DISCUSTING. My best friend had to eat a rat it was because we dared him to do it. Well this isn’t brilliant. When the sergeant shouts his face goes red and everyone gets embarrased. We got given a mission last night I almost got killed I could feel a chill go through my body. I tell you what I had to do last night I HAD TO GO TO NO MANS LAND. I had to run across no mans land a flair spitted across no mans land. I was on the floor for seven minutes, mud blowing up my nose. Mud stinks. I may not be going back for Christmas.

Fin M’s War Diary

14th October 1914

Dear Diary,

We can’t wait to go to war. I can’t belive we are going to get paid to shoot the Germans. I am going with my freinds Billy, Bob and Sean. Today we walked up to the stage and we singed up the whole crowd roared. I was so scared. One boy got the white feather no one will talk to him. I felt really bad for him he looks really sad his name is Josh. I don’t like looking at the “your country needs you” poster!

Fin M’s Confession

My Mistake

I made a mistake when –
I painted the traffic lights green….
I told my hamster he could surf….
I told my dog he could sing….
I gave my brother paint….
