Wednesday 11th December 1935

Managed to catch the 5.45 GWR tonight. During the first drill we attended a lecture on Gas; most grisly. Tear gas, toxic smoke, chlorine, phosgene, mustard, lewisite. All nasty things!

The lantern slides were definitely graphic. The blister gases have an unpleasant effect; also those of the choking variety. Toxic smoke causes intense irritation, with the object of making a man remove his mask, thus getting a dose of something worse. Very neat.
